Dancing On Icebergs

Dancing on Icebergs charts the two-year-long making of the short film Antarctica: The First Dance created by Kiwi choreographer Corey Baker with Royal New Zealand Ballet star Madeleine Graham. The creative duo spent twelve days on the ice as temperatures reached as low as -16 degrees. They spoke with the resident climate change scientists on the icy continent before dancing to draw attention to the rapid ice melt, sliding down mountainsides and even being suspended in a glacier.
Dancing on Icebergs premiered on Choice TV, New Zealand on 12th October 2019. Keep an eye on our social media to find out when and where the documentary will play next.
