Photos of Dance Salad 2006 and ACDFA (South) Regional 2006

ACDFA's regional was held over Spring Break at the University of Texas at Austin. Some photos from the classes and performances are available for viewing as well.

It's remarkable how much the photos capture both the position and the tension and elasticity in the dance, most notably in Thundering Silence, Morning Ground, Upon Calligraphy As the Form of Regular Script, Tchaikovsky Suite, Les Bras de Mer, and All River Red.

Here is a link to a review...
Some general comments overheard (but I did not personally confirm). The groups from China seem to use "textbook Graham technique" in their classes, as per once of the assistants (an ex dance teacher) of the producer. William Pedro is supposedly only 17.
Pedro is a captivating and engaging performer. He has superb form and timing. I (and my camera) were very taken by him.

I would love to hear what some of our classically-trained posters think of Pedro. I felt it would be interesting to see him in work other than Bejart's. Puck of course came to mind. (Apparently he already does a version of Firebird!!)
The images of the Guangdong dancers are also very stunning and capture a sense of how pwerful they must be moving on the stage.
Those are the two I'd most love to see in live performance.
