Watch the recording of a live Google interview of Atlanta Ballet Resident Choreographer Helen Pickett by Encore Atlanta's Kristi Casey Sanders. In it she talks about her path to becoming a choreographer and her new works, The Exiled (part of the MAYhem program May 16-18) and Camino Real (premiering March 2015).

"Atlanta Ballet dancers are going to be commenting on dreaming. Helen Pickett is going to be immersed in existentialism, that’s her interest right now. Then we have Jorma Elo using the music of Jean Sibelius. Of course, he’s Finnish, and what a great work that is. It should be a pretty interesting evening." - ArtsATL
