ICYMI: Ever Wonder What Sleeping Beauty Saw in Her Dreams?
Sleeping Beauty Dreams event in Miami premiered during Miami Art Week drawing hundreds of theatre goers to the Adrienne Arsht Center for an EDM music-themed modern dance interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s “Sleeping Beauty”. The show was a beautiful mesh of contemporary ballet interacting with state-of-the-art Real Time Avatars.
The story has been told time and again but no one, until now, has dared to imagine what it was the princess was dreaming about. She was out for 100 years, and prima ballerina Diana Vishneva played the part of Princess Aurora alongside Brazilian dancer Marcelo Gomes who played Prince Peter.
Aside from this being totally new the music was composed by one of the EDM industry’s top producers, NOISIA’s Thijs de Vlieger who’s worked with artists like Skrillex and deadmau5. The costumes were designed by the legendary Bart Hess who has worked with artists like Mama Monster herself, Lady Gaga (claws up Little Monsters)!
The cast and crew then took their talents to the Big Apple at New York’s Beacon Theatre. Peep pics from the event below!
