Every year The Washington Ballet holds its annual Spring fundraising gala. This year’s event, A Moveable Feast: the Hemingway in Paris Ball, was hosted by Senator Chris Todd at The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
Lead by Artistic Director, Septime Webre, the Ballet was originally founded as a school in 1944. As one of the pre-eminent ballet organizations in the United States, the Company has built an international reputation for presenting bold performances by choreographers from around the world.
The theme for this year’s gala was Hemingway’s life in the Paris of the 1920s and drew its inspiration from the Ballet’s performance of Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises. Working closely with Webre and his team, Sullivan created a rich and colorful identity for this year’s program. Fueled by images of Parisian café culture, late night jazz and typography reminiscent of the era, the identity is a celebration of Hemingway’s spirited life during that time.
