National Dance Company Wales have teamed up with Oscar-winning composer Atticus Ross for their new production. He tells Dave Owens about stepping into the world of dance
Gennadiy works through the political system as an activist, and he runs an orphanage, but the system doesn’t work fast enough for him—or for the thousands of street kids who live in his city of Mariupal, Ukraine, most of whom are addicted to a lethal cocktail of injected cold medicine and alcohol. So at night, he goes on raids for the lost children in the ruins of this empire.
In 2012 we approached Atticus Ross (best known for his award winning score work alongside Trent Reznor in the films ‘The Social Network’ and ‘The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo’) to write music for the Blood Brother end credits. Unfortunately he was too busy working on the Nine Inch Nails album at the time but we stayed in contact and tried again with our early Gennadiy footage. He called it a ‘powerful experience’ describing Gennadiy as a project he ‘couldn’t say no to’. The music for the Kickstarter campaign was written with his brother Leopold Ross. They will work together with Claudia Sarne to create the score for Gennadiy.
The panel of composers will include:
Atticus Ross, Brian Tyler (Iron Man 3,John Dies at the End), David Sardy (End of Watch, Zombieland), other panelists TBA.
Tickets can be purchased at the link for SUNDAY, JUNE 16, 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
