Pleased to announce a day we’ve long been waiting for: BBC have finally announced an air date for the Boy Blue Entertainment / The Space film that we made this time last year! Lit by Lucy Hansom and me, Emancipation of Expressionism will be shown on BBC Two this evening as part of a double bill entitled “Darcey Bussell’s New Dance“. Choreographed by Kenrick H2O Sandy with music from Michael “Mikey J” Asante, the film was directed by Danny Boyle, and filmed at the Barbican Theatre in London. We had the opportunity to give it the full music video treatment, with multiple camera angles including footage from a drone flying inside the auditorium at the Barbican.
A classic of the genre, BBE took the opportunity to film the piece for broadcast, but also for archive as it is a set piece studied in schools as part of the Dance syllabus.
See here for my post about filming the show last year.
