Ballet Nouveau Colorado begins another innovative season next weekend with even more collaborative work. Last year's Carry On received such rave reviews that extra shows were added on - proving that BNC's modern approach has taken root in the hearts of Colorado dance lovers.
While Carry On focused on mixed media of the musical variety, featuring artists of up and coming Denver based band Paper Bird, their next feature, Intersection will combine dance, poetry and film. Collaborating with the Lighthouse Writers Workshop, Artistic Director Garrett Ammon's Intersection follows life in suburban America when a teen in the community goes missing.
Michael J. Henry, Lighthouse Writers Workshop Executive Director, collaborated with Ammon on the project, spending five months selecting words, music, choreography, and converging all of the aforementioned. The composition features classical composers such as Bach and Chopin.
BNC has truly mastered the art of mixed media, treating Denver to the best of it's artists all in one evening's performance. It's a wonderful display of the raw talent in Colorado, and the ability for each of these art forms to inspire one another. Some of the dancers even read the poetry during the performance, which will be especially interesting since dancers are accustomed to expressing through body and not voice. Breaking this boundry is an example of what innovative creativity one can expect while attending this 10th anniversary season kick off performance.
