Corps dancer Zoe Zien is taking her second run at photography as this week’s Instagram guest. Zoe will be capturing our final moments of Program III: The Masters during our closing run at the Adrienne Arsht Center this weekend. Although we will be bidding farewell to some truly momentous ballets, Zoe will help capture the memories to share with you on Instagram. Follow Zoe #ZoeMCBPhotos!
In addition to snapping shots this week, Zoe will be busy onstage performing George Balanchine’s La Valse and Alexei Ratmansky’s Symphonic Dances. We caught up with Zoe to get the dish on why she LOVES dancing both of these ballets:
La Valse has a great vintage and decadent style to it. I love when a Balanchine ballet has some what of a story because it is within the movement he has created that you find your character. There is no need to over interpret.
In Symphonic Dances I am continuously discovering new things on stage and it always feels very personal. I can change my intention each time while continuing to push the extended movement of Ratmansky’s work to the limits. It’s demanding in the best way!
Both ballets create different fantastical worlds to get lost in.
I love dancing them both!
See Zoe perform these ballet LIVE during Program III: The Masters this weekend, March 8-10, at the Adrienne Arsht Center.
