Charlotte Ballet, under the direction of Hope Muir, begins its Innovative Works this weekend, beginning on the 25th. The company details the program:
In a daring experiment, the works of William Shakespeare come to life at Innovative Works through a creative collaboration with UNC Charlotte. Artistic Director Hope Muir has paired renowned choreographers with Charlotte-area Shakespeare experts to explore his works from a fresh perspective. Acclaimed choreographer Peter Chu joins Robinson Distinguished Professor of Shakespeare Dr. Andrew Hartley, while award-winning choreographer Stephanie Martinez pairs with the playwright, theatre and dance historian Dr. Lynne Conner. Join us to witness the culmination of this innovative collaboration and experience Shakespeare’s enduring tales in a fresh, provocative way.
This exciting performance explores female characters and is an exemplary example of regional companies prioritizing strong female work and subject matters.
