Ludovic Ondiviela (former Royal Ballet) is creating a new ballet Sliver of Sky with Lauren Cuthbertson and Matthew Ball (The Royal Ballet), Begoña Cao, James Forbat and Francisco Bosch (English National Ballet), Hannah Rudd and Luke Ahmet (Rambert), Kesi Rose Olley Dorey and Russell Fine.
Sliver of Sky is presented by new charity Inspiration In Motion in association with Amnesty International UK. The aim is to raise awareness of the issue of solitary confinement and bring attention to the fate of those who have been deprived of this freedom. Humans are social beings. How does one find hope when locked up in insolation, as Albert Woodfox was, for 43 years, 23 hours a day in a 6ft by 9ft cell? The only view of outside through a tiny window, offering only a sliver of sky…
