National Ballet of Canada short films screen with Ballet 422

Films by National Ballet of Canada Choreographic Associates Robert Binet and Guillaume Côté make their Hot Docs debut at the Bloor Cinema in Toronto on February 27 with the new film, Ballet 422.
From first rehearsal to world premiere, Ballet 422 takes us backstage at the New York City Ballet (NYCB) as dancer and up-and-coming choreographer Justin Peck crafts a new work. Ballet 422 illuminates the process behind creating a ballet within the ongoing cycle of rehearsals and performances at one of the world’s great ballet companies.


WHITE RUSH
D: Dylan Tedaldi | 2014 | Canada | 7 minutes
Concept and choreography by Robert Binet; Commissioned by The Royal Opera House for the Deloitte Ignite Festival 2014
White Rush examines the relationship between the four adult children of Leda, a prominent figure in greek mythology. Two are fully mortal while two are divine but the product of Leda's rape by Zeus, creating a complex dynamic. 


From Rob Binet: "Called 'exceptionally beautiful' by The Guardian, White Rush was commissioned by The Royal Opera House and first screened in London in September and we are very excited that it's now going to be having it's North American premiere! The film features four brilliant dancers from The National Ballet of Canada: Svetlana Lunkina, Félix Paquet, Emma Hawes and Jack Bertinshaw and the music of Nils Frahm.

Dylan and I, as well as some of the cast, are going to be at the 3pm screening this Saturday and we'd love to see lots of you there!" White Rush will be screened at the following times:
