Columbia Off the Wall and Onto the Stage: Dancing the Art of Jonathan Green
March 6 @ 3:00 pm–5:00 pm
Critics have acclaimed this production to be the greatest addition to Columbia City Ballet’s repertoire. The ballet, conceived and choreographed by Starrett, was created in 2005 as a tribute to the world-renowned award-winning artist Jonathan Green, known for his vibrantly colorful art depicting Gullah life in South Carolina’s Lowcountry coast. When describing the inspiration for his art, Green says, “While the southern soul is often portrayed as angst or peace, the southern spirit is filled with creative healing energy, always evolving and growing in its creativity and adaptability. While there are pains in life and survival, I view the South today as appropriating the best of its cross-cultural heritage constructing a new sense of place and an enhanced sense of purpose.”
