Get A Leg Up

Get A Leg Up - Premiere (2)

DUET – 20 minutes

GROUP (for 9 dancers) 60 minutes (Trailer)

A clairvoyant eyes her success and schemes with the power of a Prince to elevate her position at any cost. A plan is hatched, evil feeds a fire. Everyone loses, charity included.

Clint Lutes twists a factual story to create an intricate fictional scenario of greed, betrayal, charity and death. The events are based on a fire at the Bazar de la Charité at the turn of the 20th Century in Paris. The characters are dreamy and arrogant, conniving and beautiful, tragic and calm.
