We’re already anticipating Sascha Radetsky’s role in the new Starz TV series “Flesh and Bone,” which premieres on November 8, and now the former American Ballet Theatre soloist is giving us even more to look forward to. New York University’s Center for Ballet and the Arts has awarded Radetsky a Fall 2015 Fellowship for his new writing project: a work of fiction—either a novel or a set of short stories—set in the ballet world.
The Center’s seven other Fall Fellows are approaching ballet scholarship and artistic creation from various mediums including writing, musical composition, choreography and even puppetry. Among the choreographers is John Selya, former American Ballet Theatre dancer and star of Twyla Tharp’s Tony Award-winning Broadway show Movin’ Out. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about these works-in-progress when the progress phase is over; meanwhile we’ll (not-so) patiently wait for Radetsky’s upcoming debuts onscreen and on the shelves!
