Big Boi, Outkast Ballet

Things That Make Me Go Hmm: The Big Boi Ballet

I will go ahead and say that while I appreciate the beauty and skill that goes into ballet I'm not exactly a season ticket holder. However, a little news item recently caught my attention and it sounds like the kind of ballet I could really get into.

Billboard.biz is reporting that Outkast's Big Boi is partnering with the Atlanta Ballet for a show called Big that will "fuse the Atlanta Ballet's visual movements with Big Boi's music." Some of Big Boi's songs that will be included in the "collaborative piece" are “Morris Brown” from the Idlewild soundtrack, "Church" and "Bombs Over Baghdad."

Check out the Atlanta Ballet's web site to see a preview of this project and for more information on how to buy tickets. I'm jealous of any of you Atlanta folks who get to see this live, it looks so interesting.

What do you guys think? Does hip-hop and ballet sound like a winning combination?

That looks amazing - the video was impressive, but I'd love to see how they incorporate costumes and sets. It is hard to imagine what they'll do for Bombs over Baghdad, but I bet it could be amazing.
