1. The enclosed video is from the “Now See Hear” concert, presented in the spring of 2011, at the Father Ryan Arts Center, McKees Rocks, PA. This project was presented by Mid-Atlantic Contemporary Ballet Company with Anime’BOP! Ensemble, and is an example of our programs that feature dancers and musicians sharing the stage, original choreography and power point backdrops.

    The excerpt presented is from the work, “Last of the Trojan Women” with choreography by Gerard Holt, performed to the music of Andre Previn.
    This is a programmatic work that used the melodramatic and often dissonant music to exemplify the pain and drama of the story. Our programs strive to connect with the audience by offering the familiar with the unexpected. In this example the music would be very foreign to most, but by pairing it with the universal feelings of loss, it suddenly sounds both familiar and comforting.

  2. Mac Ballet is so fortunate to have such talented individuals helping us build our company. Mac Ballet's Resident Choreographer, Miriam Scigliano and Mac Ballet's film editor Johnetta Hall continue to produce wonderful work with film and video. This is Miriam's version for a Mac Ballet commercial. This one uses texts. Our film editor will also be producing a commercial for us where I will be visibly involved and talking in it. Bravo Miriam! Great work!
