Salt Lake, a New Ballet in 3 Acts
Sound: Recorded music (Jello Slave), live music (Jason Crigler on bass guitar, Michelle on cello), spoken text (Shakespeare sonnet)
One actor, 4 ballerinas, a film by Trent Harris, salt (fleur de sel, rock salt, kosher salt, Morton Salt and a salt lick)
A story ballet/performance art mashup in which salt becomes a metaphor for desire and passion. Fleur de Sel stars as a salt obsessive visited by salt nymphs as she negotiates the fallout of bliss, desire and despair.
