“I have written my name on the far side of the sky.” Yves Klein

Scottish Ballet’s Choreographer in Residence Sophie Laplane partnerd with James Bonas (The Crucible) and film director Oscar Sansom to create Dive, a short film inspired by French artist Yves Klein and what has become the world’s most famous shade of blue.

Expect Laplane’s quintessentially quirky choreography paired with striking visuals in this teal-toned treat.

Dive was available to watch from 29 April 2021 - 31 May 2021.

‘A work of collaborative genius, milking the best elements of dance film for all they’re worth, Dive once again positions Scottish Ballet as a force to be reckoned with in this field.’

★★★★ – The Scotsman

‘A brilliant film from Scottish Ballet ... 10 minutes of dance that’s funny, surreal, surprising and bursting with ideas.’
