Safe To Be Me®
The Shimmering Extraordinary Films
The Shimmering Extraordinary, created by Emmy Award-nominated director Fx Goby, is a collaboration between Scottish Ballet and Nexus Studios.
Commissioned as part of our Safe to Be Me® Festival 2021, a digital festival of dance that celebrates diversity, the films are inspired by the programme’s themes of acceptance, identity, and respect.
Bringing together artists from various backgrounds, the six short films focus on the stories of six individual dancers; Annie Edwards, Hayaat Zahra Shah, Madeline Squire, Mukeni Nel, Nikita Gold and Saul Nash.
The films shine a light on each person’s journey and practice, giving voice to their story, and celebrating dance as a means of expression and communication.
