The ballet might conjure images of Renaissance Italy — from where the art was born six centuries ago — but that’s not this story. “Kentucky! Volume 1” is the first of a three-part ballet story about Kentucky. Featuring spoken word artist and LEO favorite Hannah L. Drake, “this new ballet art film explores human connection and resilience through the lens of the people who make it a place. Weaving together the state’s present with its past, and told in a non-linear style, with one dancer as the central character and thread that connects it all.” Choreography directed by Louisville Ballet Artistic Director Robert Curran, set to “The Violin Concerto in D minor, Op 47” by Jean Sibelius and an original score by Scott Moore.
