Christopher Williams: Narcissus
Narcissus is an original, evening-length ballet set to Nikolai Tcherepnin’s score “Narcisse et Echo” composed in 1911 for the Ballets Russes incorporating themes of the eponymous Greek myth on which it is based to re-envision the original ballet through a contemporary queer lens. The work, featuring costume and set designs by Andrew Jordan as well as lighting by Joe Levasseur, is performed by dancers Christiana Axelsen, Jack Blackmon, Ching-I Chang, Janet Charleston, Breckyn Drescher, Alan Good, Casey Hess, Shayla-Vie Jenkins, Justin Lynch, Jake Montanaro, Alexander Olivieri, Michael Parmelee, Logan Pedon, Caitlin Scranton, and Mac Twining, with New York City Ballet principal dancer Taylor Stanley & Cemiyon Barber in the title role.
