If Black Swan and ballet seen through psychological horror lenses are not really your thing, perhaps you should start counting down to Love Tomorrow instead. Former Royal Ballet soloist Cindy Jourdain and English National Ballet Principal Arionel Vargas star in this romantic indie movie written and directed by Chris Payne (The Jolly Boys’ Last Stand).
Love Tomorrow follows a day and a night in the lives of Eva – a ballerina whose career with the Royal Ballet has been cut short due to an accident – and Oriel, a passionate but penniless dancer from Cuba. As their paths and destinies cross they commence a journey of self-discovery, love and passion set in the London dance scene. Also in the cast are Bright Star actor Samuel Barnett, alongside dancers Begoña Cao (ENB) and Miguel Altunaga (Rambert).
We are expecting plenty of dance sequences; director Chris Payne has said that one of the films that helped with his research was Frederick Wiseman’s recent documentary on the Paris Opera Ballet La Danse. Michael Nunn and William Trevitt (aka The Ballet Boyz) – whose documentary Strictly Bolshoi won an Emmy Award in 2008 – are associate producers and in charge of choreographing for the movie. Love Tomorrow is currently in production and set to premiere in 2011.
