English National Ballet, National Dance Company Wales and Scottish Ballet join forces for the first time in a ground-breaking national celebration of dance inspired by London 2012 and the coming together of the British nations for ?Team GB' Danced by Scottish Ballet, Martin Lawrance's Run For It is a high energy work inspired by the power of Olympic athletes. This dynamic piece is set to the propulsive rhythms of John Adams' Son of Chamber Symphony and features a striking sculptural installation created by Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Boyce. With sly musical references to Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean's sensational 1984 Sarajevo Olympics win, Christopher Bruce's Dream is a heartfelt tribute to sporting bravado and a tongue-in-cheek celebration of this event. Bruce's witty and powerful piece danced by National Dance Company Wales weaves together both the London 2012 Olympics and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in a unique piece celebrating the physical movement. The grand finale is provided by Itzik Galili's And the Earth Shall Bear Again danced by English National Ballet. Inspired byJohn Cage's prepared music for piano, Galili's piece attempts to turn Cage's rich and versatile music into an extraordinary but accessible piece of dance. "The title sounds epic and enigmatic", says Galili, "2012 is a year of many beginnings, with potential for new world records...To me, it's like the earth having its birth again." Screened with the performances is Dancing Parallel, an awe-inspiring film by Nic Sandiland featuring 60 young dancers from London, Cardiff and Aberdeen on a journey through classical ballet, contemporary dance and the thrilling agility and speed of parkour.
