Ballet Deviare was founded in 2003 and is located in New York City. Unbound by restrictive standards of tradition, Ballet Deviare was created and founded by Laura Kowalewski (co-director and choreographer) and Andrew Carpenter(co-director) with the intention of broadening the scope of dance, while providing audiences with original choreographic works.
Ballet Deviare presents “Disconsolate”, a nine-minute experimental dance film directed by Adam Waltner. “Disconsolate” is a powerful, soul-entrancing depiction which illustrates the depths of human suffering. Set to “Waldlander im Herbst” from the funeral doom phenomenon CELESTIIAL (Tanner Anderson), the piece evokes a feeling and mood that is as hypnotic as it is effecting.
“Disconsolate”‘s staging and patterning were influenced by the ballet “La Bayadere, Act II: The Kingdom of the Shades”. “Disconsolate” was Ballet Deviare‘s recognition of its ballet foundation, while simultaneously redefining its classical roots.
