Artistic Director Ben Love gives Shakespeare's brutal and gripping tragedy the Ballet Soul treatment in this edgy and evocative reimagining, with a dazzling original score by British jazz legend Julian Joseph.
The film transports us to modern Britain, where high flying media man Othello is taking London by storm. He is a passionate and powerful African man, married to the love of his life - Desdemona.
In a dream he is left a blood red scarf by the spirit of his mother. A token of his past and a symbol of his love, their present and future, Othello gives the scarf to Desdemona. A decision that may come back to haunt him.
