Announcement: Andrew Kaiser’s Astro-Ballet in Paris

April 21, 2011–April 21, 2011

UNESCO Headquarters
125 avenue de Suffren,
75007 Paris, France

A new ballet composition by Andrew D. Kaiser, an artist working on the STUDIO supported Moon Arts Project, will be premiered as part of an international forum held to mark the celebration of the anniversary of the first manned spaceflight in 1961. The Astro-Ballet was choreographed with Natalia Guslistaya, Russian choreographer and former Bolshoi ballerina. It is a multimedia composition focused on the sounds of outer space with interactive, high definition images and videos displayed behind the “stage” — or in this case an illuminated platform that appears to float in space giving viewers the feeling of zero gravity.

The programme has been drawn up and implemented by Melody for Dialogue among Civilizations Association, in cooperation with the Permanent Delegation of the Russian Federation to UNESCO, the Bureau of Strategic Planning and the Natural Sciences Sector of UNESCO.
