During their residency, Halla and John are hosting a spiritual cyberpunk ballet workshop. They are remaking the ballet “Giselle” with Elizabeth Ward as a guest star. Their interpretation of “Giselle” is hemmed by darkness and has an almost apocalyptic wildness where we witness the unravelling and morphing of various characters from the world of ballet. We are confronted with the hierarchies within the language of ballet: it’s technique and pantomime, the distortion of the narrative through score making, the blurring of the roles between male and female. It is a sort of a horrific dream odyssey through the world of ballet, where there is too much of everything.
Come as you are. No particular dancing skills needed, but bring it if you have it!
