First, a disclaimer: I am not Anna Kisselgoff or Arlene Croce- but I know what I like! I loved the performance this afternoon in Philly! S Webre gave a brief intro, and then off to 3 vibrant, creative, contemporary ballets. First was "Blue Until June" with music by Etta James, choreography T McIntyre, followed by T Tharp's "Brief Fling", and finally, Webre's own "Juanita y Alicia" with live Cuban music. The dancing- a blend of classical, contemp, modern, and ?- was fantastic. This group worked hard- most were in every piece, and would have to dance again tonite. Their versatility shone, and the cultural diversity of the company is amazing. Major gripe- no photos in the Stagebill, so one could put face to name. S Webre had a short Q and A at the end re: Hispanoamerican influences, etc. I am really looking forward to a return visit- a real refreshing change from classical/ neoclassical.
