Veronica Lee-Baik and her dance company, the Three Yells, are back with a remount of Giselle Deconstruct, a choreographic deconstruction and retelling of the renowned (and famously weird) ballet Giselle. The company chucks most of the first act and focuses on the lives of the Willies, which are the sylvan fairies who dance men to death in the second act. The show combines rib-cage-shattering industrial music with striking visuals and expressive, modern movement to tell a story about women who grow up in an environment where they have to fight everything all the time and rely on each other for strength and guidance. Sounds about right. Lee-Baik recently won a James W. Ray Venture Project Award for "A Crack in the Noise," so look for that in the future, too.
