Welcome to BalletTalk soloist mom!

It may not be the "Forsythe Ballet" but Forsythe does have a company at present, Ballett Frankfurt, where he will stay until 2004.

I have edited this several times, and decided all I can commit to is that I hope Mel will write.

I think I've made my proposed solution to this dilemma above - move to Chicago, or San Francisco, or maybe Cicely, Alaska. Given this choice is a lot like being executed in Utah: Do you want to be hanged or shot? They both know better than to be doing what they're doing, and are foisting non-ballet on the world. As with much of my writing, my comment is plagiarized - "A plague o' both your houses!"

I meant that I hope Mel (hello, Mel!) will write when he gets to Chicago....or wherever he thinks he will be safe from all this. But it's a small world. Is there a new International Style in the making in ballet? I'm all for World Federalism, and the Balkanization of Ballet at the same time....
