Why has Jennifer Dunning reviewed Dance Galaxy, but we haven't????? Surely SOMEONE went to see the Martins/Martins new work? Comments, please!

For me, it was the old "loved the dancers, didn't like the repertory" scenario. The new Peter Martins looked very much like a Heather Watts pas de deux, with cut off tights, lots of difficult and jerky poses, with the occasional flexed foot. I enjoyed the music, because it was live, which makes such a difference, and the odd combination of instruments (saxaphone, piano, cello, and violin, as far as I could tell) made for an interesting sound. The music had a sort of a casual, impromptu feel, but the choreography was pretty souless. The new Stanton Welch looked like just about every other Stanton Welch piece I have seen, except that the costumes were bright orange. I thougth their first season had more variety, last night all the pieces looked pretty much the same.
