"JANE AUSTEN'S HEROINES" BALLET
“Jane Austen’s Heroines”For a while, I have been sketching out a pas de deux for my one of my favorite Jane Austen characters, Elizabeth Bennet, and her paramour Mr. Darcy. But something always kept the work from gelling. Now, suddenly, I realized what was wrong. I love Austen’s characters, but it’s Jane herself who really who has held my attention and admiration all this time. And finally, I understood what my project wanted to be. Today I announce that I am choreographing a work about my four favorite Austen heroines, each dancing solos that reflect the complex, independent people that they are. And in the final segment, I will join them up with their creator Jane! It will be delightful to see how they all dance with each other. We will feature music from Jane Austen’s songbook collection, as well as pieces from her favorite composers. I will choreograph with a classical ballet vocabulary, but I will also add a form popular in Austen’s day: Regency Dancing. Collaborating with Emily Benedek as literary and artistic advisor, together we will make a full classical ballet that will bring the best-known Austen women to life, as they dance with their creator.
