'Milk Man' interpreted by North Haven students

Deerhoof announce ballet DVD release
A ballet interpretation of Deerhoof’s ’Milk Man’ album has been released as a DVD.

Described as ‘part ballet, part surreal performance art, and part rock show’ the album was transcribed and arranged by Courtney Naliboff, the music and drama teacher at North Haven Community School, located on an island 12 miles off the east coast of the US in Penobscot Bay.

PE teacher Ken Jones choreographed the performance.

Deerhoof made the journey to the island to watch the last few rehearsals.

“It was like seeing our baby all grown up!”, said drummer Greg Saunier. “It was so crazy, Courtney and the gang took our songs into their hearts and just ran with it, without any help from us. Through their vision and hard work ’Milk Man’ became something so much grander than we ever thought it could be."

Proceeds from sales of the DVD will benefit the North Haven Community School Building Fund, a non-profit campaign to build a new school building on North Haven.

The DVD is available at milkmanballet.com.
