Q&A with Sergio Diaz of Ballet Preljocaj.

Diaz, like all the dancers, was part of the creative process of all three pieces Ballet Preljocaj is bringing to the Edinburgh International Festival (And then, one thousand years of peace, plus double-bill Helikopter and Eldorado). Preljocaj gives his dancers a starting point – a theme, piece of text – and asks them to improvise, then embellishes it and sews it all together. ‘I like to say that he sculpts our movements,’ explains Diaz.

"I don't think we have done anything unusual," Carreno said when asked about the uptick in attendees. "It's just people from last year talking about how much fun and good time they have here."

Toba Singer remembers Richard Cragun in the California Literary Review.

.....He gazed up at me with a new-found respect, and we plowed through Cranko—his habits, predilections, charms, precocious choreographic genius, and the sorrier parts, such as his untimely death, and the result that he bequeathed Cragun almost nothing of his repertoire, such that Ricky, in poor health, was living in straitened circumstances in Rio. He was thankful to be the titular artistic director of his ex-lover’s ballet studio, and for the occasional opportunity to coach Cranko works at Ballet de Santiago. He mentioned that he did cartooning, and showed examples of his work that he kept archived on his phone.
