About the event:
Members of Untapped New York are invited to attend @giselle, a technology-driven, contemporary interpretation of the beloved romantic ballet classic at The Gerald W Lynch Theater in New York City. Directed and choreographed by Joshua Beamish/MOVE THE COMPANY, the modern reimagining of the romantic classic ballet @giselle explores the connections between the original ballet with modern relationships. This innovative production examines how technology has changed romantic relationships and love, while bringing the story into today’s world. @giselle presents audiences with an exclusive preview of today’s most innovative and boundary-pushing artists and performers.
This stage production explores how dating apps and social media have changed the way we view love and relationships in the modern world. The story follows a young woman named Giselle who is betrayed and ghosted by her partner on social media, leading her to livestream her own premature death. This performance blurs the lines between reality and digital illusions as she haunts her tormentors as motion-captured holograms projected onto live dancers.
This innovative production raises questions about the impact of technology on romance and relationships, and also addresses issues of power and accountability in light of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. Beamish challenges audiences to realize how technology has reshaped the nature of modern love. The original ballet, which premiered in 1841, tells the story of a young peasant girl’s journey through love and betrayal, ultimately leading to her tragic death and subsequent haunting by supernatural beings.
