Erik Bruhn Prize
Posted 28 March 2002 - 06:11 AM
The competition will be accompanied by a screening of the documentary film "I am the Same, Only More" on the life of Bruhn. I had a master class on sunday with Martine Lamy, on Erik Bruhn, and we watched some of the video. There is some excellent footage, that we would not have if fans had not illegally videotaped his performances!

Paquita, have you seen Guillaume Cote? He's risen so quickly in the company, but I don't think I have seen him in a featured role.

I've seen Guillaume Cote a few times during the past 2 seasons. His performance as Kromov in the Merry Widow was wonderful and sticks out in my mind the most. I also saw him in Pastorale with Heather Odgen ( his most frequent partner), the Comforts of Solitude, and Theme and Variations. He's been given many lead roles, Siegfried, Romeo, the Nutcracker, Serenade, Mozartiana, Poet in Les Sylphides- and my friends who have seen those performances say he has enormous potential. He has an elegant line, deep plie, and lots of charisma. The company really needs a young danseur noble to fill Aleksandar Antonijevic's shoes in the future. Cote will dance Apollo this May which I hope I will be able to see. On thursday there was a TV special "The Dancer's Story: 50 years at the NBoC", which included excerpts of him and Ogden performing Romeo and Juliet- they dance beautifully together, and I'm looking forwards to seeing them at the Erik Bruhn Prize!
