The Firebird, by Lesley Barnes. Reproduced in my copy of The Graphic Canon of Children’s Literature, ed. Russ Kick


Ballet takes much inspiration from fairy tales.  I hope aerial dance will start to do likewise.  Someday I would like to choreograph a version of “The Firebird” for aerials, with a costume at least as splendid as Lesley Barnes’ illustration.  Not this coming year, though: we have a different, but also very classic, project up our sleeves for 2018.
