Animation sequences from "A Glimpse into the world of Narcissus."
Narcissus is an original, evening-length contemporary ballet set to have its world premiere at New York Live Arts in October 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the live performance premiere has been delayed until further notice. (hopefully resuming with a fall 2021 date.) These rotoscope animations were created and shown as part of a video installation in the lobby of New York Live Arts during the fall 2020 season. The animations will be developed further and return with the premiere of the Narcissus ballet in 2021.
