Commissioned by English National Ballet and directed by Morgann Runacre-Temple and Jessica Wright, Curing Albrecht (2016) shows a young man who checks into a bespoke institution, hoping to be cured of his inability to stop dancing. Inspired by themes of dancing and madness in Giselle, it was was created as a curtain raiser for ENB & Akram Khan's Giselle.
The score is a 'recomposition' of Adolf Adam's score for Giselle.
In 2017, Curing Albrecht won awards for Best Dance Film at the New Renaissance Film Festival, Best Director at the Portland Dance Film Festival and the Audience Award at the Choreoscope International Dance Film Festival. Curing Albrecht was also made available on BBC iPlayer during January 2017.
