Colts Announce 2011 Program
DECEPTION: The Jagged Edge
Inspired by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s epic ballet Swan Lake, and Darren Aronofsky’s mesmerizing Academy Award nominated film, Black Swan, the Colts present our own tale of deception about the jagged edge between innocence and the dark side within.
“Art is the most beautiful deception of all.” – Claude Debussey
The jagged edge is “a feeling all performers are familiar with, the spooky sense, when you’re in full flight, that you’ve crossed over into the dark territory of dream, or fairy tale, somewhere you haven’t seen before. It’s the exhilaration of losing yourself, and the fear of being lost to yourself forever.” – Terrence Rafferty, New York Times (October 30, 2010).
Musical selections include:
Swan Lake – Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Danza de los Duendes – Nancy Galbraith
The Swan from Carnival of the Animals – Camille Saint-Saens
Mind Heist – Zack Hemsey
