The Frost Place Participant Spotlight

The Frost Place Participant Spotlight

Lani Scozzari, a former Frost Place participant has written a new collaborative work, titled Ballet’s Child. Along with choreographer, Donna Murray, and filmmaker Tiffany Rhynard, Ballet’s Child tells the story of a young girl, whom at age 7, was told to “lose five pounds” at an audition where she stood in a line of girls in black and pink.  The journey told through words, film and movement is one of dysmorphia and complicated coping rituals while in pursuit of technical artistry.  We follow the speaker through her darkest moments only to be lifted and touched by her strength, desire and empowered choice to live.  The work is in its final stages of rehearsal and will premier at the Duncan Theatre in Lake Worth, FL in April of 2014. Check out their website, www.balletschild.com for more information.
