Cult of Color: Call to Color

About the Production

One of Ballet Austin's most innovative collaborations. In a most unusual ballet in two acts, we take a mythological journey with Sesom, a vegan priest who is thrust into an epic voyage to bring color to the black and white underworld. Trenton Doyle Hancock's comic book-style characters intrigue and enthrall with humorous, original choreography by Artistic Director Stephen Mills and an equally outrageous and inventive score from composer Graham Reynolds. Choreographer, writer, composer and visual artist come together in a creative alliance that is sure to leave audiences delighted and exhilarated.

CHOREOGRAPHY: Stephen Mills  |  STORY & VISUALS: Trenton Doyle Hancock  |  MUSIC: Graham Reynolds

What Critics Are Saying...

...First a collective gasp, then a moment of silence and only then the hearty applause.

..."I was experiencing something that felt familiar but in some ways totally unfamiliar."

"Cult of Color: Call to Color" requires giving oneself over to the absurdity and the oddity in the moment;

there's time to make sense of it later."

...Color, procreation, and fertility need meat (body, flesh) to thrive against the calculating mind of the evil enemy.

And as the production's clinching sinister climax reveals, the two can never, according to Hancock, blend harmoniously."
