About The Great Bear

The Great Bear is a short story written by artist and writer Olly Williams and is the inspiration for a new contemporary ballet. A powerful translation inspired by an ancient Iroquois legend of a mystical bear and a young hunter, you will follow the trail of The Great Bear on an epic journey through the primordial forest and into the celestial heavens above. Both the choreography and musical score will continue to be developed in 2020 into a full-scale ballet. Come and see the exciting collaboration including breathtaking choreography by Andi Schermoly, danced by the Louisville Ballet, USA, a bespoke score composed by Mark Springer, played by the Tana Quartet and a reading by a special guest.
