Video: GRIMM TALES, adapted by Stephen Mills, music by Graham Reynolds, Ballet Austin at Long Center, March 29-31, 2019
(video published by Ballet Austin)
They were meant as cautionary tales, to keep us on the straight and narrow. But many familiar childhood stories started as grim reminders of what happens when naiveté meets wickedness, and the balance between good and evil is in question. In this new, full-length work, made possible through the generous support of the Butler New Choreography Endowment, Artistic Director Stephen Mills delves into the underbelly of some of your favorite fairy tales and shows you the real beauty of the lessons they impart. Inspired by the visual art of Natalie Frank, the world premiere of Grimm Tales will leave you unsettled, unafraid, and undeniably hungry for more.
