EGO laurels

Most of us have an alter ego hiding under the surface. We try our best to keep it in, but sometimes it escapes.

Take a front row seat into the psyche of a relationship. Using world class ballet, krump, popping & bboying we witness different moments played out in pure contrast by four incredible dancers. 

This is EGO, a Northern Ballet original dance film.
