But how do they do it and why is it a role in demand? Polly Bennett, who has worked with Rami Malek and Oliva Coleman, and Shelley Maxwell, who is helping the actors in Equus capture the movement of horses, discuss the role of the Movement Directors.

What are the financial implications when festivals are cancelled at the last minute? John speaks to Tim Thornhill,director of Integro, the UK’s leading insurance company which specialises in underwriting festivals.
