Opening of “Behind the Stage Door” presented by the Philadelphia Ballet in partnership with Mural Arts
Experience ballet in a new way at Behind the Stage Door presented by the Philadelphia Ballet in partnership with Mural Arts on April 29 through May 24 at the Pier.
Behind the Stage Door is an interactive multimedia performance that explores the “invisible” forces that bring the ballet to life. Through a soundscape of diverse voices, original musical composition, dance, film, sculpture, and interactive multimedia stage design, the piece illuminates the many personalities, stories, and experiences that underlie and make possible the transcendent art form that is the ballet.
Philadelphia Ballet II performs new choreography by Maria Konrad, Gary Jeter, and Da’Von Doane to original music composed by John B. Hedges; the evening will also include an animated film produced by Big Picture Alliance, animated by Cybee Bloss and illustrated by Alex Aldrich Barrett as well as set designs in partnership with Mural Arts.
Friday, April 29, at 7 pm
Saturday, April 30, at 3 pm and 7 pm
The performances are free and open to the public. No tickets are required.
See the exhibition April 29 through May 24 at the Pier.
