Interview with Patrick Corbin, Paul Taylor dancerin Miami to stage "Company B"
Posted 14 September 2009 - 12:47 PM
Corbin mentions that Company B was choreographed with an eye to being performed by both Houston and San Francisco Ballets, so there are more balletic moves and elements than in most Taylor works. On the other hand, he mentions that Miami has advantages when it comes to dancing contemporary work like Taylor's. Villella's classes, for example, are both "weightier" and "jazzier" than most ballet company classes Corbin has observed.

Glad you brought up this interview with Patrick Corbin. I really liked hearing his "open to interpretation" account of how he saw the piece. Very thought provoking and is motivating me to see it once again.

Corbin's reflections at the end of the interview about WW2, and how the ballet reflects it, go really deep. The interviewer is a little trigger happy, but don't let her throw you off. She gets him to say amazing things.
