Sharing Beautiful Illusions
January 15, 2013
The film's very title addresses the idea of pain for gain in dance, a topic that strikes close to home for the dancer and choreographer, Olivia Ratcliffe.
Ratcliffe began dancing ballet at the age of 3. She pursued her formal education at the Royal Ballet School and the English National Ballet School. Work-wise, she danced with SemperOper Ballet and DanceCyprus. Sadly, she was forced to put away her flats as chronic Tendinitus was causing her excruciating pain. She bravely pursued a different career path in Graphic Design, but dance lingered in her heart. There was a message in her experience that needed to be communicated.
Aaron Buckney and Jessica Taylor, the producer and the co-director of Beautiful Illusion, were both film students at the University of Gloucestershire when Ratcliffe approached them to collaborate on a film.
The result was Beautiful Illusion.
Beautiul Illusion was screened at the Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema in Boulder, Colorado in 2011.
