About the recording
Join Artistic Director of Fallen Angels Dance Theatre Paul Bayes-Kitcher and his creative team as they explore the making of Transfiguration – a trio of high-quality dynamic 10-minute dance films, focusing on a series of defining moments in the journey from addiction to recovery.
Paul was born in Yorkshire and started dancing at the age of four. He trained at the Royal Ballet and Rambert School. His first professional experience was with Scottish Ballet where he danced various principal roles and in 1990 he was accepted into Birmingham Royal Ballet were he became a Soloist.
On his own journey of recovery Paul has dedicated his dance practice to creating exceptional dance performances and participation opportunities for people experiencing addiction. These experiences have been the inspiration for Transfiguration – a beautifully crafted cinematic trilogy of dance shorts.
Watch insights and discussion about:
- Making a dance film
- Telling dance stories of addiction & recovery
