Ballez lecture

Pride På stan, fre 2 aug 14:00–14:45

Place: Repsalen, Galärparken, Djurgården

Is it possible for ballet to express the history and background of dancers whom it has traditionally excluded from representation? By questioning the traditional value systems of the cis hetero-patriarchy, The Ballez Culture, instead, invites new audiences to witness and celebrate traditionally ”othered” dancers, through the lens of an evolving set of values. Can Ballez change ballet?

New York City based educator, choreographer and dancer Katy Pyle discusses the dance company, community and class she directs, Ballez. Ballez is inserting the history, experiences and performances of lesbian, transgender and queer people into the ballet canon through the creation of queerly re-imagined story-ballets, classes, and ballet culture.

Katy Pyle is a lesbian choreographer inserting the herstory and lineage of lesbian, queer and transgender people into the ballet canon through the creation of large-scale, collaborative story ballets, open classes, and public engagement. Pyle founded The Ballez in 2011.
