Marking the first-ever collaboration among Hong Kong Ballet, Corey Baker Dance and Birmingham Royal Ballet, the film is shot in the UK beneath Birmingham’s famous Spaghetti Junction and features Forrest Rain Oliveros from Hong Kong Ballet and Gus Payne and Haoliang Feng from Birmingham Royal Ballet. The film came from Baker’s larger collaboration and work with Birmingham Royal Ballet, Birmingham Hippodrome and Arts Council England to celebrate Chinese New Year 2020.
Set to music by acclaimed band FKJ, Spaghetti Junction was created in partnership with Corey Baker Dance, Hong Kong Ballet and Birmingham Royal Ballet, and funded by Arts Council England, Birmingham Hippodrome, West Midlands Growth Company and Southside BID.
