2015 will be filled with different project and the first one is right around the corner! Ballet Ouest de Montreal is presenting Couples and I have again been asked to be the Costume Manager. If you are in Montreal on February 13 you MUST come and see this production. Yes, it's Valentine weekend and what better way to celebrate than by going to see this piece about love in all it's different forms! The official press release from Ballet Ouest can be found here: Press Release Seriously, this piece is both funny and sad, touching and sassy. Presented in different little “segment” it is not your “traditional” ballet but formulated in a way that will satisfy both the dance lover and the occasional “ my wife dragged me to the theater and I hope it's not too long” watcher.
As a costume manager, this one is a little different. We premiered it last year and most of the costumes are actually modified street clothes. I had to make 1 or 2 leotards, figure out a way to have different layers of clothes act as 1 on the dancer and adjust some of the dresses so they could actually dance in them. Quick changes are not the fast pace quick changes that we know when doing the Nutcracker but are there none the less. From my perspective, this is a very enjoyable piece to do!
It is back for only 1 performance on the 13th of February, Salle Pierre-Mercure au Centre Pierre Peladeau, 300 Boul de Maisonneuve, Montreal. Tickets on www.admission.com
Don't miss it!
