Heidi Stubblefield’s Coppelia Project is a clown ballet loosely based on the ballet Coppelia, which is even more loosely based on a story by E.T.A. Hoffman called The Sandman. This creation revolves around a doll maker and doll he makes that is so beautiful, he refuses to finish her so to keep her for himself. The beauty he sees in her gives her life and spirit. Threatening circumstances require the doll maker to part with his beloved creation and force him to create more and more to no avail at recreating her beauty. The story questions our perception of beauty and deformity. It tip toes along the line of grotesque and buffoon to ballet and surrealism.
