Ballet Deviare – Disconsolate [Source: Ballet Deviare]
Disconsolate is a pretty cool short dance film by New York’s Ballet Deviare, choreographed by Laura Kowalewski and directed by Adam Waltner:
“Disconsolate is a powerful, soul-entrancing depiction which illustrates the depths of human suffering. Set to ‘Waldlander Im Herbst‘ from the Funeral Doom phenomenon Celestiial (Tanner Anderson), the piece evokes a feeling and mood that is as hypnotic as it is effecting. Prepare yourself for a bold and unforgettable experience. Disconsolate‘s staging and patterning were influenced by the ballet La Bayadere, Act II: The Kingdom of the Shades. Disconsolate was Ballet Deviare’s recognition of its ballet foundation, while simultaneously redefining its classical roots.”
Ballet Deviare was founded by Laura Kowalewski (Co-Director and Choreographer) and Andrew Carpenter (Co-Director) in 2003 and is “recognized for its fusion of contemporary ballet and extreme music.”
I don’t think Disconsolate is meant to be fun, per se, but I had a great time watching it and look forward to seeing and hearing more!
