Tempest Rising

Feeds on Saturday, August 29 @ 1100 – 1200ET/HD04   sIX


Tempest Rising follows the story of Roger Creel, a uniquely talented ballet dancer/choreographer/pianist/geophysicist, as he creates a ballet version of Shakespeare’s The Tempest with the Louisville Ballet.  Multiple storylines include the art of transforming Shakespeare’s words into motion; the challenge of a star dancer, formerly with the Australian Ballet, retiring at age thirty-five and returning to the stage at age forty-two to dance the role of Prospero; the inclusion of a step dancing team from West Louisville; a reversal of ballet’s tradition of “damsels in distress”; the rising star of a talented young ballet school dancer; and a sly poke at the wall building tendencies of certain Washington authorities.
