As part of their preparation for the spring 2011 production of Giselle, Doug Fullington is presenting another one of his lecture-demonstrations in January. This one is slated to travel to NYC for one of the Guggenheim's Works and Process shows, but we will see it first.
From the press release:
GISELLE “WORKS & PROCESS” PREVIEW
Thursday, January 6, 5:30 pm
The Phelps Center, 301 Mercer Street, Seattle
On January 9 and 10, Pacific Northwest Ballet will return to the Guggenheim Museum’s Works & Process series in New York with three performances previewing the Company’s new Giselle, which will premiere at McCaw Hall on June 3. Staged by PNB Artistic Director Peter Boal, this new Giselle will include choreography and action reconstructed by dance scholar Doug Fullington from Russian Stepanov dance notation circa 1900, and by leading Giselle scholar Marian Smith using French sources from the 1840s and 1860s. PNB will be the first American company in modern times to use the Stepanov notations housed at the Harvard Theatre Collection as the basis for a ballet production. This preview presentation will include excerpts from Giselle performed by PNB dancers Carrie Imler, Carla Körbes, James Moore, and Seth Orza, with discussion between Peter Boal, Marian Smith, and Doug Fullington about the process of reviving this classic ballet. See it in Seattle before it goes to New York! Tickets to this special event are $20 and may be purchased through the PNB Box Office.
