Siren is a visual journey into Royal Ballet Principal dancer Francesca Hayward’s relationship with ballet, drawing on her early experiences of the art form to create a contrastingly intimate yet voyeuristic experience for the viewer. In collaboration with choreographer Michael Montgomery and designer Simone Rocha, director Jess Kohl expertly crafts a hauntingly beautiful narrative that expresses the macabre origins of the ballets that captivated Francesca as a young child.
Styled by Robbie Spencer with cinematography by Eoin Mcloughlin, composer Isobel Waller Bridge’s off kilter score immerses us further into Francesca’s inner world.
The film was also made possible by collaboration with executive producers, Jackson Forsythe (UNSIGNED), and Juliette Larthe (Prettybird).
The film is produced and presented by Films.Dance, a global platform and creative studio for dance creatively directed by Jacob Jonas The Company.
