A young ballet dancer flees the nest to play the lead in Sleeping Beauty, falling into the trap of an abusive director that will pit her against her own mother.

A group of 8 final year students of the BSc in Film and Television Production at The University of York is producing a short film based on the ballet of Sleeping Beauty to do a short film adaptation for our final year project.

Talia is a young aspiring dancer who attempts to escape her mundane lifestyle and overbearing mother by auditioning for the main role in a ballet production of Sleeping Beauty. She's got the role, but what seems like the fruition of her dreams, descends into something far more sinister when she’s drugged and assaulted by the initially alluring director of the company.

Talia - dancer body double

Confident, witty 19-year-old with exceptional talent. Cynical and masculine, Talia is emotionally closed-off due to the absence of her father and uses dance to express her feelings. After achieving the role of Aurora in a ballet production of Sleeping Beauty, Talia leaves her mother behind but is drugged and raped (this will not be shown on-screen) by her ballet director. Attempting to cope with this trauma, Talia will have to reconcile with her Mother and fight for the freedom of her body.
