Pickles - by John C Welch

Pickles is from my Appalachian themed suite of seven dances, A Day at the Fair, set to music by Edgar Meyer and Mark O’Connor, performed by The JohnC Art Ballet. Pickles is ballet, daring and funky. The diversification of body types and personalities adds a rich aesthetic backdrop for the choreography. It demands a sense of themselves and the movement that is far removed from the traditional relationship with ballet. The personality of each dancer has a distinct influence on the creation of the choreography. It is collaboration between music and dancer, celebrating the character of both.
