Joshua Barone previews the 2016 La MaMa Moves! Festival in The New York Times:
"Ballez, a company that restages classic works with a “queer” twist, will present the world premiere of its “Sleeping Beauty and the Beast” as part of this year’s La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival.
The festival, which runs April 29 through May 29, includes the works of 17 artists and about a dozen other premieres, many of them with themes of gender, the environment and politics.
“Sleeping Beauty and the Beast” — created by Katy Pyle, artistic director of Ballez — reimagines Tchaikovsky’s 1890 ballet “The Sleeping Beauty” and the 18th-century fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast” to question traditional gender roles and tell the “herstory” of New York’s lesbian activists."
