Boston Ballet Dancers Create Human Pyramid Under Greenway’s Echelman Sculpture [Photos & Video]

Boston Ballet dancers created a human sculpture Wednesday afternoon under the Echelman Sculpture on the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Twelve male dancers formed a pyramid that is part of the first movement from their upcoming 2015-2016 season performing the Third Symphony of Gustav Mahler: A Ballet by John Neumeier.

The ballet performance is one of the last events as part of Janet Echelman’s aerial sculpture  exhibition “As If It Were Already Here”. The Greenway public art feature will be taken down in late October.

Boston Ballet’s Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen joined with Greenway Conservancy Executive Director Jesse Brackenbury and artist Janet Echelman to answer questions after the ballet performance. Boston Ballet kicks off its 52nd season at the Boston Opera House on October 22nd (tickets and more information).
