"Politics and Pop Music in Ballet" will feature an open rehearsal of Houston Ballet artistic director Stanton Welch's hip one-act work Play followed by a discussion with Welch and a group of Houston Ballet dancers.

Play is city life made into ballet with classical technique.  The dancers wear street clothes, but are on pointe.  However, the pointe shoes look like sneakers. Welch's inspiration for this piece comes from the media-saturated, heavily politicized 21st environment that urban dwellers experience.
