The new documentary called “Making of La Bayadere” is now available online.
It takes you behind the scenes of Joburg Ballet – providing a rare glimpse into the different aspects of the creative process, from the drawing board to opening night, while featuring many of key players involved in producing this iconic classical ballet. In a sense it’s also telling the inspiring story of a relatively small African dance company, overcoming a series of tremendous technical and artistic challenges, while striving to achieve world class.
