PROJECT INFORMATION: We are thrilled to release our newest production, “Iridescent Blue,” featuring some of the most difficult solo piano works ever written, which are reimagined and transformed into continuous movements that are in complete sync with the music.
We will be depicting things that change – the color, shape, sound and even yourself. Through our collaboration, we are continuing to develop our technique of bringing forth the original intentions of the composers as a direction in creating unique artistic expressions. Our hope is to create a performance where the audience can experience Classical music and Ballet with new light and deeper understanding.
