Kate Bush: The Line, The Cross and Curve

Kate Bush: The Line, The Cross and Curve

FOXTEL Arts  |  September 6, 2016

Kate's first musical film, centres around a dance studio in which dancers are rehearsing for a show. Kate is left alone when lightning strikes and suddenly a dancer, played by Miranda Richardson, with bandaged hands and red ballet shoes, comes through the mirror. She tricks Kate 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, played by Lindsay Kemp, explaining that the only way to break the spell is to "sing back the symbols", which Kate does in her unique artistic style. The film was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award.
