Bodiography Contemporary Ballet Presents Left Leg, Right Brain

When Frank Ferraro turned 40, he started having trouble with day-to-day tasks such as getting dressed and tying his shoes. At age 42, he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. But the multidisciplinary artist—who works in film, sound, sculpture, paint, words, and performance—kept making new work. One such project was ( gravity + grace), a genre-defying opera and dance performance that unpacked the experiences of individuals and families living with the disease. Now, renowned choreographer Maria Caruso gazes through Ferraro's lens, creating an original full-length ballet that aims to raise awareness about both Parkinson's and how to use it toward one's own creativity.

Bodiography Contemporary Ballet

It began, as dance does, with bodies. Choreographer Maria Caruso had become frustrated with seeing the same type of physical figure in the ballet scene, and thus, formed a company of performers who didn't have the typical "ballet body." But bucking the standard dance aesthetic went beyond just body image. Caruso soon began exploring healthcare issues in the art form, including a dance that emulated the hands of a heart surgeon and collaborating with performers battling Parkinson's disease. Bodiography's commitment to health has also branched out into the fitness world with the creation of a mat-based strength-training program with roots in ballet conditioning.
