Sketching Life looks at the process of developing something into a finished work, specifically here in a rehearsal of Elements Ballet’s Artistic Director Mike Gosney’s final work for longtime company dancer Megan Walsh. As Gosney prepares his last ballet featuring Walsh, these intimate moments between choreographer and muse are captured not only on camera by filmmaker Brian VandenBos but (with help from a group of local sketch artists) also on paper.
