Beethoven in Love

A 15-minute Dance for the Camera for BBC2. This collaboration with Liz Aggiss and Billy Cowie of Divas Dance Company is a fantasy in five songs. Filmed in a stunning Spitalfields location, it stars Down’s Syndrome performer Tommy Bailey as an unconventional Ludwig van Beethoven.

 

Reviews

"The film is a true poem full of choreographic subtelty and cinematic tenderness! Lighting and costume are ever changing in tune with the mood of every scene. The music is a magical character that centers the piece! It is a fantastic film and needs to be shown worldwide."
