Yatiri and the Mist Fairy (Yatiri et la fee des brumes) is a ballet written by Manuel Figueroa and adapted from the book by french writer Danièle Ball. The book tells the adventures of a little Aymara kid named Yatiri, who travels the desert to find the Brume Fairy, hoping she solves the drought that affects his people.
It was composed for youth orchestra (levels 2-4) and features South American instruments and rhythms, alongside with magical melodies and ethereal atmospheres. Its duration is 30 minutes, which makes it suitable for all audiences and to work with children.
The choreography is intended to children, teenagers and adults as well. The three stages of technical development can merge into the recreation of this story.
Key goals of this work are:
- Contribute to the symphonic ballet repertoire, especially for younger audiences.
- Encourage orchestra programs and dance academies to work together
- Sensitize audiences about the water scarcity problem and the visualization of native communities.
