Specially created for the 2018 Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, the original short ballet is now being developed into a full length piece using the extensive songbook of legendary Broadway composer Steven Schwartz. Conceived and choreographed by Chet Walker, the show explores ideas of belonging and isolation, fear and difference, similarity and otherness.  A tale of longing, romance and, ultimately, triumph and celebration.
