What Will I See?

Our live streams give you a behind-the-scenes look at ballets currently being created for Unbound: A Festival of New Works, featuring both interviews and excerpts of choreography. Everything you’ll see has been created over the past three weeks in our studios. These ballets aren't finished: there won’t be costumes or sets or lights, and you may even get to see choreographers changing the choreography on the fly. But they will be exciting, inventive, and unexpected. Come take a look.

unbound on Screen

We’re matching five Unbound choreographers with film directors to create five short dance films inspired by their new ballets.
