A review of the Los Angeles Ballet by Victoria Looseleaf in The New York Times.
Tayeh's misguided, 18-minute opus, "Beneath One's Dignity," lived down to its name, with 10 dancers in "Walking Dead" mode, including five gals tossing their hair as if touting L'Oréal. Tayeh, a TV favorite ("So You Think You Can Dance"), recently choreographed "Kung Fu," the life of Bruce Lee now running off-Broadway. She set this work, her fourth Los Angeles Ballet commission, to Valgeir Sigurðsson's popping sounds and eerie vocals. The piece also had stomping, crawling and a vampiresque conga line (where's the garlic?), with Marianne Parker's black, see-through garb, including man-skirts, contributing to the work's painful doom-and-tomb milieu.
