Nathaniel Hawthorne's timeless story of secret love, shame and hypocrisy, The Scarlet Letter gets an innovative twist in an adaptation fusing ballet, film and spoken word. In Scarlet, groundbreaking dance company Ballet 5:8 brings the iconic Hester Prynne and her struggles with a scornful community to vibrant life with fluid choreography, beautiful costumes and a powerful score by the great American composer Charles Ives. The results sift a classic literary tale through a contemporary, multidisciplinary production that reflects the passionate, unpredictable whims of the human spirit at Chicago's Athenaeum Theatre.
