The Becoming

User symbolFor everyone

The Becoming: A must-watch film for our 30th Anniversary celebrations! 

Join us as we revisit the incredible performances that took place at the boiler shop in Newcastle upon Tyne in January 2023. Directed and choreographed by Liv Lorent, this film brings you up close and personal with the energy and emotional commitment of our extraordinary BalletLORENT dancers.

The Becoming is not just a capture of the live event; it's a unique, bespoke creation with its own narrative. It has been reimagined, directed, and edited by our film collaborators Ben Crompton and Alex Ayre. Featuring original music by Murray Gold and Albie Crompton, beautiful lighting design by Malcolm Rippeth, and stunning costume design by Nasir Mazhar.

 This Becoming is about individuality, chaos, intimacy, and the strength we find in others. It delves into the process of creating a performance, exploring the union of bodies, music, costume, and light.
