The European Balcony Project – Trailer

The European Balcony Project – Trailer

In Europe lies the cradle of democracy. Europeans achieved a lot after crisis and war. We share a common market, a common currency, but we don’t share a common democracy. The European Union lacks a parliament with legislative power and basic democratic principles such as “one person, one vote”. We want a united Europe of cultural diversity beyond nation states. No national stubbornness. We want equal rights and opportunities for all European citizens. In a Republic, all sovereignty comes from…

National Theatre Live: Hansard | Creating Set and Movement in Hansard

National Theatre Live: Hansard | Creating Set and Movement in Hansard

I start off with the human being on-stage rather than the set, and then the set evolves around it. If you have a two-hander in an uncluttered space, every move and every gesture says so much. So, I’m extremely thrilled that it was Alex Jennings and Lindsay Duncan who were the two people who inhabited that set. The job of movement director is always very interesting. It is what’s not said that holds a lot of weight. My role was…

You’re wonderful. (LAUGHTER) Everybody worships me. It’s nauseating. It would be nice to know what you were really like, under all the trappings. Just a lost boy.

Daniel McCormick: Emerging Dancer 2018 Winner | English National Ballet

I got started in ballet because of my sister, who’s also a dancer. Basically I’ve always been in the studio ever since I was a baby with my mother, but one day when I was four, I saw a guy roll in on a skateboard to the ballet studio and it struck me, and it was the first time that I saw a male do that and it really interested me and I said to my mom, I want to…
