Sink or Swim

8.2.2018 | Tags: moving image, Louis-Jack

Director Louis-Jack and choreographer Charlotte Edmonds dive into the mind of a woman struggling with depression in this film supported in part by The Royal Ballet, the mental health charity Mind, Arts Council England and Studio Wayne McGregor.

The film stars Francesca Hayward, principal dancer with The Royal Ballet, in an unprecedented underwater performance and was inspired by an oil painting of Northern Irish artist Ian Cumberland, in which he depicts himself submerged, fully clothed, in a bath of water.

The film hopes to raise awareness and understanding of mental health in a compelling new way. There should be no shame in admitting you don’t feel you can keep your head above the water.
