More About Scarlet: Ballet-Film Hybrid

Chicago’s Ballet 5:8 uses classical ballet and film to bring a story inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The Scarlet Letter” to life. “Scarlet” features original choreography by Ballet 5:8 Artistic Director Julianna Rubio Slager, film elements directed by Preston Miller, spoken word by Chicago-based artist Kylla Pate, and a dramatic score by American modernist composer Charles Ives. The full-length ballet follows the iconic Hester Prynne as she wrestles with her open guilt and grief in a judgmental society, while Reverend Dimmesdale suffers in silence with his secret sin and love. This classic story delves into the timeless struggles of hypocrisy, shame and ultimately, the hope of redemption. Audience members have called Scarlet “well done,” “spectacular,” and “brilliantly choreographed.” After the performance, audience members are invited to discuss their experience and ask questions during open panel discussion with Slager and artists of the company.
