Beautifully Grotesque: The Life of Valeska Gert is a filmed version of a live show made for online viewing. It tells the story of actor/dancer Valeska Gert of 1920’s Berlin fame. An incomparable artist whose performances challenged societal bourgeois norms, who sadly was forgotten in time and not recognized for the genre-breaking artistry she pioneered.
In this biographical dance theater piece, Janet Collard becomes the artist Valeska Gert, recreating some of her famous dances in her own costume designs. 4/3, 4/4, 4/10 and 4/11 in the Afternoon session. And YouTube on demand.
Grass Valley’s NorCal Fringe Theater Festival is part of a network of over three dozen fringes taking place in the United States every year. The local festival joining these two networks helped attract award winning acts from all over North America.
