dna3d and Birmingham Royal Ballet launch new Film...

Celebrate Tea Party On 31st May 2012 a tea party, hosted by Birmingham Royal Ballet, took place to mark the launch of the dance film “Keepsake.’ ‘Keepsake,’ is the final outcome of the Celebrate Project, and features, as performers, members of St Mark’s Day Centre, Perry Locks Nursing Home and the Golden Age Forum Hockley, as well as  dna3d dancers. Filmed and edited by dna3d new comer Gemma Howe,  ‘Keepsake’ took its inspiration from the stories that members of each group told to the company, who then worked to interpret these stories through dance and film.  With an Original Score by Composer Andrew Kristy, ‘Keepsake’ was seen on 31st May, by many of the participants of the project, and there were few dry eyes in the house. As Arts Champions for the Perry Barr constituency, Birmingham Royal Ballet initiated and supported the project and Pearl Chesterman the Director for Learning said that the project was “ bigger and of much greater importance than ever imagined.”  dna3d are extremely grateful that  Birmingham Royal Ballet looked to work with the company to deliver such a significant and special project.
