What's on at Stratford Upon Avon - Picturehouse Docs
Between 2009 and 2013, England’s Test cricket team rose from the depths of the rankings to become the first and only English side to reach world number one. Featuring behind-the scenes footage from the period and original interviews with star players and coaches, The Edge tells the story of this special group’s journey to the top, their unmatched achievements, and the huge toll it would take. Compelling, funny and emotional, this is Test cricket like you’ve never seen it before.
This screening is followed by a live satellite Q&A with host Greg James and Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott and James Anderson.
Force of Nature Natalia follows a season in the life dance superstar Natalia Osipova. With unique access to Natalia's personal archive, we follow her preparations for a fifth season as a principal of the Royal Ballet as she continues to champion contemporary dance with some of the world’s greatest choreographers. We watch the rehearsal process of new ballet Mother by Arthur Pita, a new commission with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, and the Royal Ballet's legendary production of La Bayadere directed by Natalia Makarova.
Natalia opens up about her life and history, her childhood in Russia, her time with American Ballet Theatre and her journey to the Opera House. It is an unparalleled opportunity to get up close and personal with the leading ballerina of our generation and understand why critics and audiences all over the world call her a force of nature of the dance world.
