It’s with a lot of pride, and some other shit, but mainly excitement––and possibly sticky fingers because I just ate waffles––that I can announce the release of the long-awaited DVD of Persephone: A Rock Ballet.
There’s a screening of the DVD happening to celebrate its release. That event is happening at Morning Star Studio in Fairfield, on August 31st at 8pm.
I’m really proud of this. There’s a lot of shit I would change in this show, of course, because I’m an artist and it’s my art. But it’s alive, it exists, it involves a whole community of people (36 dancers and a band!).. It’s just really cool to have done it, and I send many thanks to Hilary Jordan for creating it with me back in 2011 and 2012. She put a tremendous amount of work into organizing the visible half of the show. Casting and choreographing dancers, developing costumes, working out lights, staging, booking… It’s a lot of work for one person.
I still really love the songs in this show, and I hope you all get a chance to check it out. Maybe we’ll be able to stage a production of it again some day. That would be amazing. Til then, come to the DVD release!
