Force of Nature Natalia


Force of Nature Natalia follows a year in the life of dance superstar Natalia Osipova. With unique access to Natalia’s personal archive, we follow her preparations for a fifth season as a principal of the Royal Ballet as she continues to champion contemporary dance with some of the world’s greatest choreographers. This compelling portrait follows the rehearsal process of two new works, The Mother by Arthur Pita, and Sidi Larkin Cherkaoui’s Medusa, and observes legendary ballerina and choreographer Natalia Makarova as she directs a revival of her classic production of La Bayadere for the Royal Ballet with this ‘force of nature’ dancing both lead roles alternately.
