Florida Pro Ballet Company Depicts Love Between Women in Don't Say Gay State

Arts & Culture

 Azara Ballet, a non-profit professional dance company, will be performing “LOVE  between LINES”, in their grand finale of the season at Neel Auditorium, March 1 and 2nd at 7pm.  Kate Flowers, Co-founder Azara Ballet, explains how they are transforming the ballet culture, “This is a mesmerizing contemporary ballet show with an overarching theme of cultural freedom and liberation. This unique production features four original short works of art, each a testament to the creative prowess of Azara Ballet's talented dancers and choreographers.” Love is Love | Choreography, Kate Flowers: As an LGBTQ+ identifying ballerina, Kate was inspired to bring the message of love and equality to the stage through the lens of ballet. Fueled by the lack of queer representation she had growing up in the media and in the dance world, she proudly challenges traditional ballet norms with her piece, Love is Love. Kodumaa | Choreography, Martin Roosaare: Choreographer Martin Roosaare unveils a lesser-known narrative of his Estonian heritage in this captivating dance piece. Exploring the poignant tale of Estonia's liberation from the Soviet Union in 1991, commonly referred to as the "singing revolution," Roosaare weaves a mesmerizing story using the expressive language of dance. In the Studio | Choreography, Martin Roosaare & Kate Flowers: This piece unveils the untold stories of dancers. Beyond the masterpiece of beauty and elegance that an audience witnesses in the final product on stage, there are years of passion, hard work and often pain. This piece delves into the internal world and mental struggles of dancers by inviting you to view the perspective "In the Studio". Ms. Protagonist | Choreography, Olivia Huseonica: Ms. Protagonist boldly examines the diverse roles assigned to women in media and society. The dancers convey that real women are not confined by prescribed roles or the limited imaginations of those who tell their stories. This work celebrates the profound truth that women are beyond capable of transcending the inadequate narratives often ascribed to them.  LOVE between LINES performances are Friday and Saturday, March 1 and 2 at 7pm at the Neel Performing Arts Center on  the campus of State College of Florida located at 5840 26TH St W, Building 11, Bradenton.
