SB Dance’s Sleeping Beauty Jan 31 & Feb 1
A story retold many times over, SB Dance’s Sleeping Beauty is far from any Disney version, with an unpredictable narrative and a clever assemblage of innovative artists. Conveying the freaky fairytale through an adventurous entanglement of dance, theater and little dialogue, this warped tale also features live music by pop duo MiNX, along with a score including Sinatra and Scarlatti.
