Kes reimagined is a new film by award-winning choreographer Jonathan Watkins and International Emmy award-winning director Ross MacGibbon, based on the novel A Kestrel for a Knave by Barry Hines
Jonathan Watkins’s acclaimed production was conceived and created for Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre in 2014.
Set in a Yorkshire mining community, this reimagining of Hines’s tale told through dance and puppetry, takes us on a journey with the young working-class boy, Billy Casper. Billy is troubled at home and at school but his outlook on life is transformed when he finds and trains a kestrel. As the beloved Kes swoops and spins in the expansive freedom of the Yorkshire countryside, Billy’s self-confidence begins to soar and boy and bird become one.
“…This film is exceptional story-telling in dance” – Dance Tabs
“Makes your hear soar… A terrific crowd-pleaser” – The Daily Telegraph ★★★★
“Genuinely too powerful for words” – The Guardian ★★★★
