Alastair Macaulay on the dual farewell performance of Janie Taylor and Sebastien Marcovici:
When dancers retire, most are still young, with much of their working lives only then beginning. Janie Taylor and Sébastien Marcovici, husband and wife, gave their farewell performance together on Saturday with New York City Ballet and have careers ahead of them. She is already a costume designer; on Thursday and Friday, performances by Tom Gold Dance will feature new costumes by her. He is becoming a ballet master with L.A. Dance Project. And yet from now on, many people will think of them as figures from the past, remembered chiefly from the lives they led onstage in City Ballet’s repertory.
