Friday, May 26 – “Liar Lear King” Satellite Collective NYC and Grand Rapids Ballet 7:30 p.m. Main Stage
May 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Dogwood audience will be immersed in live multimedia and dance, emotional animated film, and recorded music from cutting edge string quartets to Brooklyn-based digital productions. The program features six athletic dancers of Grand Rapids Ballet, and artists from Satellite Collective of New York.
“Liar Lear King” is a bright modern ballet set in the New York City of 1972, adapted from Shakespeare’s story of family betrayal and tragedy, “King Lear.” It directly faces the impact of narcissism and bullying on our society. The story is focused not on King Lear and his tragedy, but on Cordelia and her epic journey as she becomes a force who can mount an invasion of her own country, only to die at the hands of her own sisters.
