Firmly placed as a Beyond iStories title, The Tale of Brin & Bent and Minno Marylebone, The Ballet is an interactive expansion of a traditional print graphic novel being published by Jonathan Cape, Random House in May 2012.
Whilst we have the ability to publish this title as an interactive graphic novel app, our hearts are set on something even more ambitious. Our goal is not only to push, but to surpass the boundaries of what an iPad reading experience might be.
In essence we’re planning a re-telling of the original, dark and achingly beautiful graphic novel through a stunning and poetic interactive contemporary dance piece. This is an app that will, quite simply, take your breath away.
The Tale of Brin & Bent and Minno Marylebone, The Ballet, really will break new ground. Simultaneously a story, an interactive app and a work of art, this incredible Beyond iStories title is set to define the genre. With an original musical score and dance choreography, exquisite artwork and animation, our first Beyond iStories app opens up deep new worlds of possibilities.
The Tale of Brin & Bent and Minno Marylebone, The Ballet will be available in the App Store and on iTunes in late 2012.
