Amplified Ballet

dance loudly in silence

To generate Amplified Ballet requires the dance troupe to be have a large number of tiny transmitting microphones built into their costumes. These convey in total detail every nuance of sound made by the dancers to a high fidelity speaker system that projects the resulting sounds.

This means the audience gets to hear the breathes; the counts; the twisting and stretching noises of the garments; the sinews and joints of the dancers; the heels on the floor, as they jump and pirouette themselves around the stage. There is no music audible to the audience, but the dancers hear it to enable their performance timing etc via inner ear phones.

The net result is that a famous ballet such as Swan Lake becomes a visceral audio experience that gives full voice to the raw physical effort required to deliver its performance.

sp. "cacophony".
It would be interesting, but I'm not entirely sure it would be particularly pleasant.

       This sounds terrible.

       With amplification, I expect it would sound more like a wrestling match, or maybe a weight lifting competition. Ballet ain't for sissies.

       I suspect you could re-train dancers into marines, but not the other way around.
