Connecticut Ballet is up to some pretty cool and interesting things...
In case you missed it, last week eight company dancers performed a piece entitled ‘Babble’ in the lobby of 99 Pratt Street, each in a window space meant for... mannequins? window dressings? Who knows.. but one thing is for sure, the space was PERFECT for this dance piece.
Audience members roamed freely around the lobby to gaze at the entrapped dancers, four on each side. The piece was innovative and artsy and, most of all, super intimate. When has any 'normal' person been a foot away from a ballerina? Seeing dance, particularly ballet from such a close proximity was astounding.. to see the leg muscles in action.. facial expressions that would have gone missed from afar.. and from the right angle, the dancers communicating.
All in all, not a bad way to spend a mid-week lunch break!
