In our Macbeth “Meet the Players” series, we’re interviewing the cast of our upcoming production. Get to know all the players you’ll see on stage in our ballet adaptation of ‘The Scottish Play’ March 29, 30 and 31 at the Athenaeum Theatre.
CRB: How long have you been with the company, and what role fo you play in Macbeth?
Carley: “This is my 5th season with the company, and I play one of the Weird Sisters/Witch”
CRB: What are some of your thoughts about Macbeth?
Carley: “It’s been interesting to revisit MacBeth and dig back into the characters, storytelling, and choreography. I was a part of the original cast when CRB first performed the ballet, but this time around I am performing a different role. I personally have had quite a bit of freedom to explore my character and even embody it a bit differently than the last cast. The Weird Sisters were originally a female pair but this time around I share the role with Luis. Creating new pas de deux moments this season, as well as figuring out our relationship to one another has been a bit of an exploration throughout the process, but I feel like we’ve managed to created some really interesting characters that help the story unfold.”
CRB: What about your time at CRB these past 5 years?
Carley: “So many memories have been made over the years! I can honestly say that I really enjoy working with everyone that Wade chooses to be in the room year after year, even as the company has changed over time. Everyone has something unique to bring to the table, but can work well as a group. It’s an amazing group of dancers and people to be surrounded with and to be a part of.”
CRB: What might the readers of this interview not know about you?
Carley: “As soon as summer rolls around you’ll find me outside in my kayak, or on my paddle board with a fishing pole in my hand!”
