Highlights from 2001

5 posts in this topic

A companion to Calliope's thread above, for non-ballet performances.

Shen Wei's "Near the Terrace," for its beauty and competency (especially the first section)

Compagnie Jani-Bi of Senegal?s ?Le coq est mort," another tanztheater piece, this time with a very African flavor, that was extremely powerful.

Paul Taylor's "Dandelion Wine." (Not new, of course, but new to me). A New Century version of "Diggity," another "light" Taylor that I loved.

well, up here in seattle...

Maureen Whiting's Dance Company, a wonderful surprise. Moving minimilisim and technology that actually worked.

Sean Curran's work created for Cornish College Dance Theatre. A wonderfully physical piece with seamless partnering that wove in and out of leaps and falls.

Alonzo King's Forest(is that what it was called?). A fusion piece that actually worked.

David Gordon's FamilyDeathArtCom.edy at Danspace. It ends with a ppd for Gordon and Setterfield that is a perfect portrait of a long marriage.

Paul Taylor's Black Tuesday, even though it was set on ABT it was choreographed on his own company.

Lucinda Childs' Concerto for White Oak, also her Carnation danced by Emily Coates.
