Well, I'm baffled that this exists -- but it does. Pokémon. As ballet. Seriously.
This performance doesn't skimp out either: it goes through everything from the initial 'chose your Pokemon' part with professor Oak, to battles, to team Rocket, to visiting places like Lavender Town. I kind of lost my shit at the part where the Pokemon faints and 'nurse Joy' bursts in, ready to heal -- with choreography, of course! Nevermind the part with MISSIGNO.
It's 30 minutes long. Wow, just wow.
This performance was held in the Creighton Lied Arts Center, and the choreography is by Andrew Plotner.
