The Elements by Jules Perrot
Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama
Jules-Joseph Perrot (1810-1892) was a dancer and choreographer who later became Ballet Master of the Imperial Ballet in St. Petersburg, Russia. He created some of the most famous ballets of the 19th century.
This balllet piece was not one of the most famous of this choreographer but this piece draw my attention; the music, the movement, the entrances of each of the elements on the stage, among others.
During the pandemic I wanted to spend a lot of time with this conceptual project, based on the Elements (earth, water, fire and wind) researching and improving my skills to design clothes with movement, not following a script if not letting myself flow with the music or incorporating new techniques such as the aerial hoop or smart fabrics.
