"Guernica" is a short dance film, based on the stage ballet of the same name. The piece is choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa for Unbound, San Francisco Ballet's new works festival -- coming in April, 2018.
Annabelle is one of 12 choreographers commissioned to make new stage ballets for Unbound, four of which will have accompanying short films that will show separately from the stage works. I am thrilled to be working on this one for Annabelle's distinct and energetic ballet, with its mythological characters and angular movements.
The Columbian-Belgian Lopez Ochoa is an award winning and sought after choreographer, having made works for over 50 dance companies around the world.
