I'm with Amy -- I haven't really participated in this conversation, but I've followed it with interest. Please do continue.

As for the Tajik production of MP -- I don't know that it's been staged by someone from the Limon Company, but it certainly doesn't seem like it. A bit too decorative and lightweight.

OK, so I lied . . . this will be my last Limon post of the season:

I think I saw these kids at the Friday night Limon performance I saw in New York in June. Interesting that they are learning Limon's Psalm -- not a dance for kids, I would think.

In any event, here are some photos of Limon company senior dancer Francisco Ruvalcaba teaching them Psalm:

I had the exact same reaction. This looks like yet another bootleg version of The Moor's Pavane popping up in what was the former Soviet Union. I wish a publication like Ballet Review would publish an overview of The Moor's Pavane in the former Soviet Union as there have been sanctioned productions (i.e. the Mikhailovsky) and what seems like a whole slew of unsanctioned productions.

Write Marvin Hoshino and suggest it.
