“At Hamilton Stage, Emily Anton had plenty of opportunities to test her formidable range. In Absinthe, Anton swooped and swirled through the shadowy world of a faded 19th-century Parisian beauty. In Bloody Mary, she attacked the ferocious steps, with their improbable balances and severe épaulement. The costume Zehr created for the role had a cartridge-pleated, dark-red tutu and jewel-encrusted bodice that were as grand and unbending as the noble lady.
Anton was also the ingenue sweater-girl lead in Zombie, the full-company finale with its eerie music and fifties-meets-futuristic costumes. Retro fear-factor projections warned of nuclear attack and, post-apocalypse, showed bathing beauties plunging into swimming pools to glorious brass music. The ladies of the Zombie corps navigated this sci-fi universe wearing silvery pleated helmets that looked like mini Guggenheim Museums perched on their heads. The dancers appeared equally ready for an artsy cocktail party or disaster.
But then, aren’t we all nowadays?” – Stephanie Woodard
The other highlights of the evening included Shirley Temple, fun and flamboyant, danced by Emily Anton – Marina Kennedy
Emily Anton is living a dancer’s dream right now. The former Stillpoint Dance Studio dancer who spent her middle and high school years in Ashland is now a member of the Ballets with a Twist company in New York City. -Edith Decker
