SLEEPING BEAUTY’S SLUMBER COMES TO LIFE IN EDM- INFLUENCED CONTEMPORARY BALLET PERFORMANCE IN MIAMI AND NEW YORK THIS DECEMBER
An Age-Old Fairytale Awakens with New Perspective at World Premiere in South Florida During Miami Art Week; Then Travels to New York’s Upper West Side Beacon Theatre
The world premiere of Sleeping Beauty Dreams, a contemporary art exploration of the age-old fable brought to life by Magic Reality Group, will debut at the Adrienne Arsht Center during Miami Art Week. The EDM-influenced performance explores one of the most iconic stories ever told, Tchaikovsky’s “Sleeping Beauty,” and will showcase the first-ever fusion of live contemporary ballet dance with Real Time Avatars projected on-stage.
A story never told before – Sleeping Beauty Dreams is an unprecedented fusion of contemporary dance with state-of-the-art, Real-Time Avatar projection and electronic music for a multi-dimensional scenic experience. This emerging technology allows the constantly transforming avatars of Sleeping Beauty Dreams to seamlessly replicate the dancers’ movements live, adding a whole new dimension to the world of live performance.
The legend of Sleeping Beauty has been retold by masters since the 14th century, but no one has explored what the princess was dreaming while she slept for 100 years. International prima ballerina, Diana Vishneva, performs as Princess Aurora and Marcelo Gomes as Prince Peter – creating the greatest duo for retelling the classic tale then and now. The ballet artists are brought together in a fusion of dance, music, art, and revolutionary avatar projection displayed with a technology and in a format never seen on stage before. Artists joining Vishneva and Gomes include digital designer Tobias Gremmler, who works with Bjork, and costume designer Bart Hess, who works with Lady Gaga, choreographer Edward Glug, light artist Laurent Fort, music by famed EDM pioneers, NOISIA/Thijs de Vlieger, whose music is featured on Hollywood blockbusters and works with some of the world’s biggest artists including Skrillex and deadmau5.
Discover an interpretation of what happened during the princess’ 100-year slumber in Miami at the Adrienne Arsht Center on December 7th and 8th at 8 p.m.
