Week of Pines

Featuring Winner of the 2013 Welsh Music Prize, Georgia Ruth

Choreographers Darius James and Amy Doughty used songs from the Welsh Music Prize Award winning album Week of Pines by Georgia Ruth to create a unique work especially for the dancers of Ballet Cymru. Georgia’s album was also nominated for two BBC Radio 2 folk awards. Georgia and her band performed live with the Company in May 2014.

‘One of the British folk discoveries of the year’
The Guardian on Georgia Ruth 2014

‘Ballet Cymru’s artistic director Darius James steers a careful path between crowd pleasing conventional ballet and stirring the waters of innovative with projects that gently push boundaries……………in Week of Pines there was a more fun, adventurous, narrative approach that created a short piece of dance theatre.’
Mike Smith
