Ballet combines grace and storyteller's art

Friday, November 2, 2007

Art, dance and literature meet in Eureka Springs as the Mosaic Trio Progressive Ballet Company presents Gwinna, a piece based on the book of the same name by Barbara Helen Berger.

 Presented by one of the most innovative dance companies in the region, Gwinna illustrates the story of a young girl who taps into her inner power, finding her wings and remembering the deep, ancient knowledge that connects all things together in universal truths. An uplifting story, this production is a must-see for traditional ballet audiences as well as fans of the avant-garde, which combines the grace of ballet, the power of music, and the literate traditions of the storyteller's art.

 Founded in 2004, the Mosaic Trio Progressive Ballet brings a heartfelt, thoughtful show each year to the City Auditorium. Performances will be held each evening at 7:30 p.m. from Fri., Nov. 9 through Mon., Nov. 12, and also on Fri., Nov. 16 and Sat., Nov. 17. Admission is $15 for general admission, and $10 for children age 16 and under.
