cognac, kilts and rowdy girls ballet
and from now on, call me prince brave pants

by andisheh nouraee

the indigo girls project, a collaboration between the atlanta duo
and the atlanta ballet was fantastic. the show, which i saw saturday
afternoon at the fabulous fox, consisted of the indigo girls playing
seven of their songs with a full-band and the atlanta ballet
orchestra. the ballet's dancers performed pieces with each song, all
choreographed by margo sappington. even though i like the ballet and
the indigo girls, i was half expecting the collaboration to be
touchy-feely mush with ballet dancers in plaid and denim tights. i
was completely wrong.

instead of making the indigo girls into ballet, they made the ballet
rock. the dance was thrilling, kind of like a crimeless, fightless,
jets-only west side story done by a ballet for a gap commercial. the
crowd was lively, mostly female, and far more rambunctious than a
typical ballet crowd. if you drove by agnes scott college saturday
afternoon and the campus was deserted, it's because they were at the
fox with me.

unfortunately, i couldn't shoot saturday's performance. instead of
leaving you pictureless, however, i made the above photograph on my
computer, giving you a general, albeit completely inaccurate
impression of what it looked like.
