A film by Gerry Fox
Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui
Force of Nature Natalia follows a season in the life of 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. This compelling portrait chronicles the rehearsal process of two new works, The Mother by Arthur Pita, and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Medussa, and follows legendary ballerina and choreographer Natalia Makarova as she directs a revival of her classic production of La Bayadère for The Royal Ballet.
Natalia opens up about her life and history, her childhood in Russia, her time with American Ballet Theatre and her journey to the Royal 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.
