Rambert project shortlisted for the FEDORA Prize for Digital 2020

The public voting phase of the FEDORA Digital Prize launched on 4 February 2020. We are inviting audiences to vote for Spirit to help us win the prestigious prize alongside €50,000 to develop this exciting digital experience. Spirit will be a digital storytelling experience for audiences inspired by Aisha and Abhaya, Rambert’s new co-production with The Royal Ballet.

The digital platform will fuse dance, film, music, art and augmented reality (AR) to engage new and current audiences in an innovative, ground-breaking way. Using motion capture in everyday settings through an app or online platform, Spirit will interact with audiences in local neighbourhoods, streets and parks in the cities the production will tour to throughout 2021.

About FEDORA and the FEDORA Prizes

The FEDORA Platform showcases and supports excellence and renewal in the field of opera and ballet. The Platform provides visibility and funding to innovative co-productions created by emerging artists that are still in the making, and education programmes. Alongside nurturing European innovation and creativity, FEDORA ’s mission is to increase opera and ballet’s accessibility and reach out to a wider audience by harnessing the digital shift.


FEDORA has established four Prizes: the FEDORA – GENERALI Prize for Opera, the FEDORA – VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Prize for Ballet, the FEDORA Education Prize and the FEDORA Digital Prize. The Prizes are awarded to promising artists and teams of co-producing cultural institutions who collaborate on the creation of new opera or ballet productions to reach out to new and wider audiences. These prizes lead the way in celebrating new talents and ideas in opera and ballet which will shape the future of these art forms.

Rambert was delighted to have been awarded the FEDORA – VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Prize for Ballet 2019 for Invisible Cities.
