We’ll be commencing rehearsals this week for our upcoming film ‘Limbo’ and excited to have dancers and choreographers Christopher Thomas and Dominic Rocca playing lead roles in the short film.
A commemorative film to mark the centenary of the end of World War One, Limbo tells the tale of two soldiers, locked eternally in a moment in time. Reliving memories of the battlefields of the Western Front.
The film marks the second short dance piece of recent company work capturing narrative dance on film.
Thrilled to have these two artists on board!
