Focused on “uncommon stories of the Commonwealth,” Kentucky! Volume 1 is the cinematic first installment of a three-part ballet cycle. Rooted in history, and leaning towards the romantic, this new ballet art film explores human connection and resilience through the lens of the people who make it a place. Weaving together the state’s present with its past, and told in a non-linear style, with one dancer as the central character and thread that connects it all. This ballet invites viewers into an immersive ballet experience led by a Kentucky-based team of creators and filmed inside the Louisville Ballet studios. Featuring guest spoken word artist, Hannah Drake.

Special thanks to Blue Grass Motorsport + The Glenview Trust Company for their support of this production.
