The Becoming Film Premiere

Wednesday May 31st 2023Share page

Join us on Wednesday 14th June at 7.30pm for the film premiere of The Becoming at the iconic Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle upon Tyne. Followed by a Q & A with Liv Lorent, Ben Crompton and Nasir Mazhar.

Celebrating 30 years of balletLORENT, The Becoming is a glorious nostalgia for experiences we never had from dreams and desires into performance.

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.

We're excited to share our first film premiere with you and would love to have you join us.
