Ballez reinvents the classical ballet canon with storytelling that champions the expression of queer, lesbian, transgender, and gender-nonconforming identities within ballet. Giselle of Loneliness, inspired by the tragic, romantic story-ballet Giselle, dives into themes of despair and madness. This reimagining of a classic tale reveals the experience of dancers tortured by ballet itself, and asks, “What parts of ourselves do we have to give up in order to belong in ballet, and how do audiences participate in this demand?”
The Joyce’s presentation of Ballez is a HARKNESS FIRST Joyce Theater debut, generously supported by The Harkness Foundation for Dance.
