“Arcadia shows the burgeoning talent of yet another emerging female choreographer, Ruth Brill… She is certainly on the rise.”

Graham Watts, Critics’ Circle

“Brill is establishing a career as a choreographer. Peter and the Wolf shows a sharp eye for movement and storytelling.”

Zoë Anderson, The Independent

“Brill's Peter and the Wolf is a gem of a dance – it's funny and packed full of character and yet still ensures a great deal of technical skill from its cast.”

Inspired by the transformation of the chrysalis, my vision for the film is to explore the maturing of child to adult. I seek to express the fragility of the male dancer, through the phases of life’s journey. It stars Principal dancer and star of Birmingham Royal Ballet, Brandon Lawrence and a young star in the making, Jakob Bryan. The work has a newly commissioned score by Carol J Jones, played by the Oxford Alternative Orchestra. The film is produced by Four Eyes Film Productions.

CHRYSALIS UK part of an international film series curated by Hannah Schneider. The series focuses on the exploration of the doubt, which comes before hope and transformation.
