“Two Slow Dancers,” Choreographed by Adriana Pierce
December 2, 2022
“Two Slow Dancers,” a film by Ellie Gravitte, “follows two lovers who, despite their dreaming, can’t seem to find their way back to one another,” says Gravitte. Her recent collaboration with choreographer Adriana Pierce, one of Dance Magazine’s 2022 “25 to Watch,” features American Ballet Theatre dancers Remy Young and Sierra Armstrong in a narrative of love and loss as they dance both apart and as partners oscillating between locations like Times Square and New York City parks. The film is set to Mitski’s song of the same name and is part of Pierce’s initiative #QueerTheBallet, which seeks to include more LGBTQ+ voices in classical ballet.
