Preview: Sounds of Hazel

The Hazel Scott Ballet
August 04 - 05, 2022

This event occurred as part of the 22/23 Hop Presents season. This is an archived view.

A first look at the new ballet that brings to life the passionate piano virtuoso who risked her life and career to break racial barriers.

22/23 Hop Presents

With dazzling choreography by Tiffany Rea-Fisher, the project has been in development throughout the company's three-year residency which began in 2020. The Hazel Scott Project provided the creative and academic focus for one of the summer courses that saw DTH dancers closely collaborate with Dartmouth faculty and students, inspiring conversations on race, activism and equity in the arts. 
The work honors the legacy of Hazel Scott whose talents in both classical and jazz music changed perceptions about people of color and communicated across a diverse range of people and expressions. 
The Hazel Scott Project is commissioned by Washington Performing Arts and will premiere at the Sidney Harmon Theater in Washington, DC  in fall 2022.

The evening will also feature works from the company's expansive repertory including When Love and sections of Return.

Generously supported by the Nathan W. Pearson 1932 and Sons Fund and the Arthur J. 1903 and Nellie Z. Cohen Fund.
