balletguy writes Hey! Don't be alarmed by the name. I work for the ballet company in town and I'm looking for some help, specifically, an artist to collaborate with. Do any of you know the book "Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears" by Verna Aardema? Well I hope to choreograph a children's ballet of the book if the publishers give us permission.
What I'm looking for is an amateur rapper (or inexpensive professional) to read the prose of the book and during the times of onomatopoeic invention or cumulative tale, to break into rap while the dancers illustrate the rhythms and text. I know this sounds challenging but the possibilities are endless. I've collaborated with musicians before and I am experienced in making sure all parties are pleased with the work.
I'll take any help I can in this matter. It would be helpful if I had only serious responses.
