As the only “ballet coroner” known to dance studies, Jennifer Fisher asks these questions and brings up many other provocative issues around the story of Giselle. Fisher will conduct an  “inquest” with artists of SF Ballet, gathering “testimonies” and thoughts from of a panel of experts to shed light on the possible causes Giselle’s death, and, of course, who is at fault?
