A while back I wrote about a joint project with the Festival Ballet Providence inspired by a series of orchid photographs I shared with them. I am incredibly pleased to write now that Orchis will have the premiere performance on March 8-9-10, 2013 at the Vets.
The entirely new piece will be choreographed by Viktor Plotnikov, and the acclaimed glass artist Toots Zynsky is collaborating on the project. This is an exciting collaboration, bringing different forms of art into one production, and mostly by local artists. I am, of course, delighted that my photography inspired the project and grateful for the contribution of all involved.
Orchis, the Greek demigod was transformed into a flower after his death and gave the name to the family of flowers we all enjoy very much, Orchids.
