It's already been announced that NYCB, as well as the dance and broadway worlds, will be honoring the 10th anniversary of Jerome Robbins' death in 2008. I figured we can start posting events and items here.
And in Monday's article in the New York Sun, there was this bit of news:
Now, on the eve of the 2008 Jerome Robbins Festival, two young dancers are doing their part to see that his legacy endures by turning one of Robbins's most accessible but least frequently performed ballets Â-- his 1958 "N.Y. Export: Opus Jazz" Â-- into a film, "Opus Jazz the Film." The project, an ambitious undertaking by two 26-year-old NYCB dancers, Sean Suozzi and Ellen Bar, marks the first dance film since Robbins's masterpiece "West Side Story" to be granted the support of the Jerome Robbins Trust. And it may show a new way to transmit and translate dance to a general audience.
