We must, however, acknowledge, as it seems to me, that man with all his noble qualities…still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.

Press Reviews
"It’s an enthralling performance that transcends its philosophical underpinnings and allows us to understand the possibilities within contemporary ballet."
THE DANCE ENTHUSIAST

"Wonderful, wonderful - and yet again - wonderful. Wednesday's world premiere of Beasts, an evening-length work made for BalletX by Nicolo Fonte, was so good, I wanted to see it again while it was still happening."
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER

"Beasts explores violence, sexuality, humor, and much more, set to a collage of music by artists from Ella Fitzgerald to Débussy. Yet, Fonte pulls it all together, with flattering costumes designed by Christine Darch, a versatile set from newly minted MacArthur "genius" Mimi Lien, and Drew Billiau's innovative lighting."
