5 posts in this topic

I am not sure but believe that

shows the dedication ceremony (or some such event) for the Vail Festival.

It introduces new choreography to (Anna Pavlova's famous solo, )"The Dying Swan!" The man dancing is Lil Buck, and the man who introduces Lil Buck (for those who don't know him) is Damian Woetzel, former principal dancer at NYCB. He is now the director of the Vail Festival of Dance, and will have Lil Buck there!

It's gone viral and I'm glad... but I can never quite make out what Yo Yo Ma is saying...

Thank you ViolinConcerto for posting this link.

I think it is extraordinary and I would like to see other examples of Lil Buck. I thought it a more interesting a piece of choreography than that offered by many present day choreographers.

PS

Not meaning to be too picky, but Pavlova never danced "The Dying Swan", she danced "The Swan."

I think at the end he said something like - Natalie Portman would be proud!
