BlackC.A.S.T. at Harvard presents Vanity Lane: The Ballet
Time & Location
About the Event
Vanity Lane is an original fairy-tale and ballet written by La’Toya Princess Jackson and choreographed by Jean Appolon with music composed by Jared Hettrick, Gordon Williams, and Paul Sayed.
Vanity Lane is a study in opposites: electronic music with retro 80s influence, classical ballet blended with contemporary choreography, and a study of modern media told in fairy-tale format. It addresses the duality of beauty and self-worth and urges people to look beyond superficial beauty to find true beauty within.
The main character ElectrKPrincess is enchanted by a spell and transported to Crystalline City. She takes a journey down Vanity Lane where she confronts and overcomes three vanities. Vanity Lane rejects unhealthy media images, encourages individuality, and provides an interdisciplinary approach to exploring theater, music, and classical dance.
