Overview

 World-renowned and award-winning artist Jonathan Green is known for his use of vibrant colors in his art depicting the Gullah lifestyle in South Carolina’s Lowcountry coast. These paintings and imagery have been brought to life with this ballet through the imaginative choreography of William Starrett as a tribute to the famous painter. Green’s rich, vibrant colors infuse the stage through the backdrops and scrims while the music—an exhilarating, inspiring combination of traditional work songs, gospel music, Motown, and jazz—breathe life into the paintings’ intriguing characters. The company’s outstanding troupe of dancers depict the cultural heritage of the Gullah and Geechee communities — a veritable treasure of friendship and family, work and love, spirituality and belonging.
