Friday Film Break
“Legacy” by English National Ballet
July 29, 2022
“Legacy” is the third and final film in a digital program from Dance Journeys, an education project by English National Ballet created to connect young, local dancers with professional artists to get a taste of the company’s choreographic process. Originally set to premiere live in 2020 as one longer work, with 70 dancers and music performed by The Royal College of Music Junior Department, the pandemic transformed the project into three short dance films with 32 dancers overall. Directed and choreographed by Malgorzata Dzierzon and Renaud Wiser with filmmaker Laurent Liotardo, “Legacy” is a celebration of English National Ballet’s 70-year history.
