LOVE between LINES
March 1st & 2nd, 2024
Experience the grand finale of Azara Ballet's inaugural season with "Love between Lines," a mesmerizing contemporary ballet show with an overarching theme of cultural freedom and liberation. This unique production features four original short works of art, each a testament to the creative prowess of Azara Ballet's talented dancers and choreographers.
Love is Love | Choreography, Kate Flowers
As an LGBTQ+ identifying ballerina, Kate was inspired to bring the message of love and equality to the stage through the lens of ballet. Fueled by the lack of queer representation she had growing up in the media and in the dance world, she proudly challenges traditional ballet norms with her piece, Love is Love.
Kodumaa | Choreography, Martin Roosaare
Choreographer Martin Roosaare unveils a lesser-known narrative of his Estonian heritage in this captivating dance piece. Exploring the poignant tale of Estonia's liberation from the Soviet Union in 1991, commonly referred to as the "singing revolution," Roosaare weaves a mesmerizing story using the expressive language of dance, set to the evocative backdrop of Estonian music and compositions.
In the Studio | Choreography, Martin Roosaare & Kate Flowers
This piece unveils the untold stories of dancers. Beyond the masterpiece of beauty and elegance that an audience witnesses in the final product on stage, there are years of passion, hard work and often pain. This piece delves into the internal world and mental struggles of dancers by inviting you to view the perspective "In the Studio".
Ms. Protagonist | Choreography, Olivia Huseonica
Ms Protagonist boldly examines the diverse roles assigned to women in media and society. The dancers convey a compelling message – real women are not confined by prescribed roles or the limited imaginations of those who tell their stories. This cinematic and inspiring work celebrates the profound truth that women are far beyond capable of transcending the inadequate narratives that are often ascribed to them.
"Phenomenal, transformative, brilliant, the whole message."
"The way they shared; the dance
tied to the story they shared.
Very touching, I cried."
"The stories and the overcoming of despair to moving, inspirational, and heartwarming. Made me feel that anything is possible."
"Moving, intentional, unique presentation with acceptance of all, as opposed to stereotypical ballet"
"Sincerity, commitment, and engagement with the audience."
*All statements were made by audience members of our 2023 Gala performance, and were recorded by a 3rd party interviewer.
