Carlos’ first major digital commission for the Birmingham Royal Ballet is Empty Stage. Watch it below:
“Almost a year after stages across the world went dark, Birmingham Royal Ballet, in association with Impermanence, is proud to present Empty Stage, a new short film dedicated to the ambition to keep ballet and performance alive. This film is a tribute to the industry that we all know and love.
Song written and performed by Benjamin Scheuer. Directed by Roseanna Anderson and Joshua Ben-Tovim. Featuring Carlos Acosta and Birmingham Royal Ballet.
#EmptyStage is a celebration of the performing arts and artists. This new film is Carlos Acosta’s first major digital commission for the Company. Working with artists from different disciplines is a deep-rooted desire for Carlos; whilst continuing to nurture and highlight the world-class talent in his own company, there is also a strong pull to do the same through cross-art collaborations.”
