Green threw herself into studying Stravinsky's life and music. And, during a recent stay in New York (where she helped choreograph "Don Giovanni" at the Metropolitan Opera), she did extensive research on wedding rituals at an exhibit at the Ukrainian Museum.
Doing such in-depth study is a new way for her to make a dance, Green says. "In the past, I tended to make work that had more of a personal nature. But in the past years, I've become more excited about working on something from an academic standpoint. Ten years ago, I wouldn't have read all the books on Stravinsky."
