Austin Metamorphosis Dance Ensemble presents Ballet Under the Stars - Blanc
Austin Metamorphosis Dance Ensemble presents Ballet Under the Stars - Blanc, a performance that will feature a variety of choreographers including some emerging talent in the dance world. This year’s production will feature Les Sylphides, which was first performed in 1909 by the Ballet Russes. The beautiful setting of the park will become the backdrop of this ballet blanc. Blanc, translated “white,” refers to the wearing of long, white tutus and became a characteristic of Romantic ballets. When explored from different perspectives, the word takes on new meanings. For some it is the absence of something or a fresh start and for others it is a barrier or limit at its most intensity. Discover what Blanc means to you. The dancers begin warming up an hour before the show and this provides a wonderful opportunity to see the preparations dancers make to create art with their bodies.
