Haud Close Tae Me: A Short Dance Film

A short dance film examining the connection between our younger and older selves.

Created for Scottish Ballet, this short features professional ballerina Mia Thompson and 65-year-old dancer Jill Ferguson. Choreographed by Scottish Ballet's Artistic Director Christopher Hampson, the film is inspired by a specially commissioned poem by Makar Jackie Kay, who narrates the poem herself on the soundtrack, accompanied by Alex Menzies' music.
