On one level, Crystal Pite is a refreshingly literal choreographer. In Ten Duets on a Theme of Rescue – the highlight of this Cedar Lake programme – we see vivid variations on the theme of danger and recovery: a dancer running helplessly as he tries to catch an extended hand, a man cradling a woman whose body is stiff with dread.

Animals, playing cards, seasons: in all three items in the “Just for Fun” program at New York City Ballet on Friday, dancers continually portrayed something other than themselves. The program, at the David H. Koch Theater, encouraged you to see ballet as an art of representation.
