Ballet Austin presents Grimm Tales, a World Premiere commissioned by the Butler New Choreography Endowment, March 29 – 31 in Dell Hall.
They were meant to guide us and keep us on the straight and narrow. But many of the saccharin stories we were told as children 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 and funded in part by a gift from Dr. Beverly Dale, Artistic Director Stephen Mills delves into the underbelly of some of your favorite fairytales 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.
