Belle Redux RemounTX
A 3M Innovation Commission
Following its critically acclaimed debut to sell-out audiences in 2015, Stephen Mills brought this contemporary ballet back in time for Valentine’s Day 2017. A dark and sexy retelling of the centuries-old tale, Beauty & the Beast, this innovative work draws inspiration from film noir and haute couture. The characters you remember search for love and acceptance while performing against a visually stunning digital backdrop created by Set and Costume Designer Michael Raiford. Austin composer Graham Reynolds contributes a powerfully romantic score, blending classical instruments with industrial sounds. Indulge in this exquisite dance work… and the chance to explore the real beauty and beast within.
