Join us next Saturday, January 12, as our Repertoire dancers present a special ballet written and choreographed by Artistic Director, Jane E. Caputo.
Ms. Caputo spent over a year researching the true story of Moll Dyer, a 17th-century Irish immigrant who was cast from American society and driven from her house in a winter storm. She perished in the freezing winter weather and, according to legend, still haunts the east coast village where she lived.
“It’s not a happy piece but it’s a poignant tale of bullying. Sadly, the theme is still relevant today, 400 years later. Our dancers perform the piece beautifully and emotionally. They are eager to present this important topic through ballet performance,” explained Ms. Caputo, who saw for herself the handprints in the rock that Moll Dyer allegedly clung to the night she froze to death.
