Dancing On Icebergs
1 x 90'
In 2018 Kiwi choreographer Corey Baker made history when he filmed a world first; a dance film to highlight the impact of climate change on Antarctica. Entitled Antarctica: The First Dance, it was set to the music of UK indie pop group London Grammar and featured Madeleine Graham, a young dancer from the Royal New Zealand Ballet. ‘Dancing on Icebergs’ chronicles the build up to the trip; preparation and delays, arrival and survival training, location scouting, staging and filming of the dance, successes and failures and sheer human courage and endeavour as the days tick away to their scheduled departure. Failure to complete the film in time would have seen the entire project fall apart, something that was always front of mind for Corey and crew.
