DANCING ON ICEBERGS (2018)

Director: Corey Baker
Star: Madeleine Graham

The film, 'Antarctica: The First Dance', was created by Kiwi choreographer Corey Baker, and Royal New Zealand Ballet star Madeleine Graham.
The creative duo both spent 12 days on the ice for the film.
"Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to be there dancing. It was incredible," Ms Graham said. The Australian-born ballerina started dancing at age seven.

'Antarctica: The First Dance' features Ms Graham suspended within a glacier and sliding down mountainsides as temperatures reached as low as -16 degrees. "As dancers, we're used to looking out into the complete darkness, so to be dancing and looking out into something so spectacular and inspiring gave me that extra kind of feeling and reason to do what I was doing," she said.

For choreographer Corey Baker, the film has been a project two years in the making.
Mr Baker said the film is "hopefully beautiful but also powerful to be able to share a message around climate change that sticks with people in a different way".
