Pointe Ahead Ltd
Pointe Ahead Ltd is a dance theatre company established in 2012 under the artistic direction of Rachel Whorton. The company is currently working on 'Vacillation', a series of short dance films, based on the poem by W.B. Yeats focusing on the seven stages of man.
Pointe Ahead marries the principles of classical dance and film to make an art form, which is accessible to all. The company explores the stories and dynamics of peoples lives, their relationships and everyday situations. The familiar settings become part of the piece itself and the camera is an additional performer. At the core of any work is, and always will be, classical ballet, and this artistry drives each creation.
