French Ballet Uses Live Swans

Swan, is the brain child of French choreographer, Luc Petton. This first-ever ballet, featuring performers with toe-shoes as well as webbed toes, [debuted] on June 6th in France and is definitely the black swan of performance art. It employs dancers of the feathery-variety – namely, swans!

I’ve loved and followed ballet ever since I was 10 years old; this, however, is an extremely unique dance. I’ve never seen anything like it. There may be genius involved here (somewhere), and one has to appreciate the artistic professionalism of the ballerina…if only for her ability to keep a straight face.
