Meet Cupid’s Graces: Games and Laughter
“I was inspired to use the classical structure of the minuet while infusing contemporary forms.” –Choreographer Jordan Isadore on his work in Pygmalion.
We are excited to bring you a sneak peek from rehearsal of Jordan’s choreography! In this clip, Cupid’s Graces, Games and Laughter (played by Jordan Isadore and Eloise DeLuca), tell their own love story inspired by Pygmalion’s love for the Statue.
