East Side Story - Dance on Film featuring music by Rudimental

C-12 Dance Theatre announce they have successfully been commissioned to create East Side Story, a Dance on Film short featuring music by Rudimental, celebrating Hackney’s young people, culture and places, which will premiere at the Hackney Empire February 7th 2014.

East Side Story will be C-12 Dance Theatre’s second ever dance on film, which has been commissioned by Hackney Council’s Discover Young Hackney, an initiative dedicated to showcasing, producing, promoting and training young people in the local arts and creative industries.

This film is a 5 minute dance production including all styles of dance from street to classical and contemporary techniques, choreographed by C-12 Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director Annie-Lunnette Deakin-Foster. It will be filmed by independent film maker Daniel D Moses and directed by C-12 Dance Theatre’s Executive Producer Adam Towndrow.

East Side Story will cast up to 40 young people between 13 – 19 year olds within Hackney and rehearsals begin in December. Filming will begin in January and it will be shot in Hackney Marshes, Hackney Empire, Hackney Town Hall and Gillett Square. The opening sequence will be filmed within a playground, in tribute to Jerome Robins’ West Side Story.

Partners within the film include Clapton Girls School, who have a strong Performing Arts team of staff and pupils.

C-12 Dance Theatre is still looking for young people in Hackney to be involved says Adam Towndrow. “We are still on the hunt for young aspiring dancers, actors and performers to feature in the film. We have auditions held on December 4th at Clapton Girls School. We are also looking for film makers, choreographers and directors who would like to be involved in assisting the professional crew.”
