A new ballet from Jeremy McQueen’s Black Iris Project.
Jeremy McQueen’s Black Iris Project will develop a new evening length ballet entitled “The W I L D”, loosely inspired by Maurice Sendak’s 1962 Caldecott Medal-winning timeless children’s novel Where the Wild Things Are, and the accounts of New York City youth who have grown up in and out of juvenile detention centers. “The W I L D”will follow several young men of color as they struggle to break free from systemic injustices that permeate their communities. Transforming young mens personal stories into an artistic dance work for the stage, this cutting-edge contemporary ballet will also feature scenic design by Lawrence Moten, lighting design by Stacey Derosier, costume design by Andy Jean and performed to an original score composed by Amina Scott and internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Morgxn.
