In Sleeping Beauty and the Beast, trouble arises when the daughter of a Lower East Side garment industry king falls for a lesbian fiber artist at her 16th birthday party. The Violet Faery puts everyone to sleep for 100 years so that the Princess can come out instead in 1993.

In this new Ballez, queers return to the problematic form of ballet under Pyle's direction to write a new story from the archetypal tales of Sleeping Beauty, as created by Petipa in 1890, and Beauty and the Beast, as created by the radical lesbian theater company Split Britches in 1983.

This production continues the work of Ballez, which wrestles with the reality of queer bodies within the heteronormative, elitist form of ballet; utilizing queer magic and adaptability to find freedom and beauty in a community driven project of research, queer narrative creation, and evolving performance.  [Learn more]

Sleeping Beauty and the Beast was created during the BAX Artist in Residence (AIR) program which provides participating artists with one to two years of uninterrupted artistic, technical, and administrative support, as well as the rehearsal space and guidance necessary to take chances, refine their craft and expand their horizons.

From the Open Studio Series to the Works-In-Progress Series, the AIR program offers a rare opportunity to follow a work and engage the creators in a full arc of development.
