Guy Noir: The Ballet by James Sewell Ballet

Guy Noir: The Ballet

Underwritten by: Bigfork Valley Hospital & Center
Friday, May 8
7:30pm
@ EDGE CENTER FOR THE ARTS
Tickets: Ad $20/Sen $18/Stu $10

Known for their creative, visionary and contemporary take on a classical art form, the James Sewell Ballet (JSB) delivers another highly-appealing performance - Guy Noir: The Ballet. Inspired by the segment on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion, the neo-story ballet has garnered national appeal as one of JSB's most entertaining works. It has been applauded for its spectacle of characters, costumes and music; and it features narrations by Keillor himself, as well as music by A Prairie Home Companions' Rich Dworsky and The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band. The familiarity of the Guy Noir: Private Eye character is certain to make this ballet resonate with Greater Minnesota audiences.

Free and open to the public

Anne has a very active imagination, only natural for a writer. But in her mid-thirties, she still knows practically nothing of her own family's past. After her mother's death, Anne discovers old photos and letters that convince her to take a closer look at the life of her parents, Michael and Léna. The young couple met in the concentration camps during World War II, later moving to France to start their new life together. Soon, Anne's research into their Jewish history and their ties to Lyon's communist party reveals the existence of a mysterious uncle, Jean, whom everyone seems intent on forgetting entirely. As she gradually closes in on the discovery she didn't know she was looking for, her father grows ever more ill, and may take the secret that kept them apart for so long to his grave. In a journey that stretches from post-war France to the 1980s, Anne's destiny intertwines with her father's past until they form a single, unforgettable story. Directed by: Diane Kurys. Genres: French Language; High School Appropriate; Immigrant Experience; Jewish; Political; Romance; Women Directors

Arman is 33 and ready to make a change, starting with a run in the park. When he literally bumps into Amélie - slightly cynical but nevertheless lovely - on the jogging path, he's dead-set on making a connection with her. As a bit of contrived fate brings them together, Arman's best friend Benjamin suffers an unexpected stroke, relegating him to the hospital for weeks where he falls for his doting young physical therapist. Over the course of two autumns and three winters, Arman, Amélie and Benjamin share the incidental moments, unexpected accidents, unconventional love stories and unforgettable memories that will define who they are. Directed by Sébastien Betbeder. Genres: Comedy; French Language; Romance
