AN EVENING WITH TAGLIONI

Short film by Morgann Runacre-Temple and Jess Wright, produced by English National Ballet.

CURING ALBRECHT

Commissioned by English National Ballet and directed by Morgann Runacre-Temple and Jessica Wright, Curing Albrecht won many awards including Best Dance Film (New Renaissance Film Festival), Best Director (Portland Dance Film Festival) and Best Soundtrack (Pentedattilo Film Festival). BBC iPlayer also hosted the film during January 2017.

Inspired by themes of dancing and madness in the classic ballet Giselle, this story shows a young man who checks into a bespoke institution, hoping to be cured of his inability to stop dancing. The film was created as a curtain raiser for ENB & Akram Khan's Giselle in 2016.

The score is a 'recomposition' of Adolf Adam's score for Giselle. 

Pentedattilo Film Festival (Italy) awarded Best Soundtrack to Frank Moon in 2018
