Gonzo Ballet

On a cold night in Milwaukee high art meets pop culture as award winning choreographer Margo Sappington (Oh! Calcutta!, Billboards) premieres her latest ballet, "Common People", set to the music of William Shatner and Ben Folds from their album, Has Been. 


GONZO BALLET explores the genesis of this unique artistic collaboration by fusing the music, poetry, and dance of "Common People" with interviews of the creators, dancers, and audience members.
