One of the prime movers in our changing perceptions of narrative dance is choreographer Cathy Marston, whose works feature in major international companies. She speaks with ICONS before her premiere of The Cellist, for The Royal Ballet in London. Based on the life of Jacqueline du Pré, it melds musician into a dancer in Marston’s inimitable style where the essence of the narrative is paramount.
