Lying Together

Corey worked with Hong Kong Ballet (HKB) to create a breathtaking new dance film titled Lying Together, shot on location across Hong Kong. The film features dancers from HKB performing Baker’s iconic choreography in mesmerising locations, including the rooftops of some of the highest skyscrapers. This new instalment to the Corey Baker Dance film editions is spectacular whilst also furthering Baker’s desire to pull focus to the reality of our planet’s changing landscape. It was released on BBC’s Culture in Quarantine on 5 June 2020 to mark World Environment Day.
