“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.”

Heathrow Airport Christmas Campaign 2023 – ‘The Reunion’
‘The Reunion’ was created for Heathrow Airport to give passengers a magical start to their Christmas break, and to celebrate the emotional reunions between friends and family that happen every day at Heathrow during the festive period. Six professional dancers from some of the UK’s most prestigious companies performed in the Heathrow International Arrivals Hall throughout December.
Ruth Brill, choreographer, commented: “It has been an honour to be tasked with telling the story of festive reconnections through dance. The message of loved ones being reunited at Christmas – and all the emotions that come along with it – is a strong one that moves many of us. So, when Heathrow approached me I jumped at the chance to create a special performance around this joyful experience.”
Tonia Fielding, Director of Services at Heathrow, commented: “December at Heathrow is always a special time, with passengers jetting off to festivities with family and friends. And on the other hand, so many people choose this month to return to the UK to celebrate a long-awaited reunion.
“For all these passengers the Christmas journey starts at Heathrow, so we’re proud to give them a performance to remember by taking a much-loved Christmas tradition for many families – ballet – and using it to showcase these emotional reunions in a way that really does them justice. By working with the talented Ruth Brill, I think we’ve succeeded in conveying the magic of the Christmas period for every passenger – young or old, first-time flier or seasoned traveller.”
