Harrison Ball Achieves Catharsis

June 14, 2024

Recently retired New York City Ballet principal Harrison Ball stars in Catharsis, premiering tonight at Tribeca Festival, alongside Blondie’s Deborah Harry.

The short film, directed by Brian Logvinsky, tells the story of Alex, a self-destructive dance prodigy who faces his own demons and the pain of his mother’s death by being hypnotized by a mysterious psychotherapist Dr. Leechny (Mark Geller) and his assistants Chakra and Harmony (Jemima Kirke). Alex then experiences the catharsis of the film’s title, dancing through New York City as the sun rises.
