> DESCRIPTION

Mills College Art Museum, Danforth Lecture Hall

Dance historian Jenefer Johnson provides a historical context for Kilimnik’s video Sleeping Beauty and friends. Co-choreographed with Tom Sapsford for a 2007 London performance, Sleeping Beauty and friends is the realization of Karen Kilimnik’s decades-long dream to choreograph a ballet. The fifty-minute performance begins with the opening scene of the earliest ballet of the group, Bournonville’s La Sylphide (1836), and wending its way through time and costume changes, the mélange ends with the grand finale of Petipa’s Don Quixote (1869).
