1984 on DVD
Northern Ballet’s critically acclaimed 1984 has been released on DVD. The ballet was filmed during live performances at Manchester’s Palace Theatre during the first leg of its World Première Tour in 2015.
Choreographed by Jonathan Watkins and set to an original score by Tony-nominated composer Alex Baranowski, 1984 won the dance award at South Bank Sky Arts Awards in June 2016. Jonathan Watkins also won the award for Best Classical Choreography at the National Dance Awards in 2017.
The production features the use of cutting-edge digital technology with video designs by Andrezej Goulding, to bring George Orwell’s dystopian vision to life.
