Netflix's "Little Pretty Things" Faces Ballet Stereotypes Head-On
The pilot of Netflix's dance-driven arrangement "Minuscule Pretty Things"— in light of the YA epic by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton—will flabbergast you. It addresses, well, everything: love, murder, bigotry, rivalry, desire, young lady factions, sexual experimentation, dietary problems. Furthermore, the mind boggling plot is moved by similarly amazing artful dance successions.
Here are the fundamentals of that plot: The Archer School of Ballet is the debut center in Chicago. During the initial three minutes of the scene (no spoilers!), star understudy Cassie Shore is pirouetting along the edge of the top of the school when she's pushed off by a hooded man (Her sweetheart? An envious darling? An expressive dance expert or choreographer?) and bites the dust. Neveah Stroyer, who'd recently been dismissed from the school, is flown in from L.A. to supplant her.
While the arrangement can skirt on drama—the pilot opens with an artist being pushed off a rooftop, all things considered—its portrayal of the better subtleties of the artful dance world feels right on the money. That was foremost to the creation group. "We needed the artists to feel spoke to in their physicality, and in the occasionally appalling business of making something delightful," says chief maker Jordanna Fraiberg. "The show incorporates the coarseness and sweat, before it's enveloped with ensembles and cosmetics."
