The Line, The cross and the Curve (1993)

Film details

Cast & Credits


Dance film based on Kate Bush's album "The Red Shoes". Two dancers rehearse for a show in a hot, humid room during a storm. Lightning strikes and cuts the power, and a mysterious woman wearing red ballet shoes appears. She tricks one of the dancers into drawing three symbols - a line, a cross and a curve, and handing over her soul in return for the red shoes, which take her through the doorway in the mirror. A guide appears, explaining that the only way to break the spell is to sing back the symbols.
