The Greatest Living Choreographer
Posted 03 March 2002 - 12:54 AM
As interestingly, could one do Leaves as either a formalist or an expressionist work? Is the Leaves of either Royal Ballet (the English or the Danes) a ballet with different priorities than the one danced in the US?

I was wondering if you could tell me why you think Grigorovich is a great choreographer. Everything that I have seen by him, with the exception of one male solo in Spartacus, I have not been impressed with at all. It all seems rather unimaginative and well, boring. I have heard alot of people say they consider him a great choreographer, but I fail to see why. Maybe I'm missing something. Thanks in advance for replies.

One thing that seems to bind together these great choreographers, whatever discipline they come from, is their musicality. On that note, I'd like to know whether the work of Richard Alston is known in the USA. How is it received? (I'm not proposing him for a greatest choreographer spot - in fact, since the death of both Balanchine and Robbins it's hard to see who matches up in the sheer range of work compared with these giants).

to me, perhaps MONET would be a fair for-arguments-sake comparison, but i'm afraid where MANET is concerned i feel rather similar lincoln kirstein: (and i'll vaguely paraphrase: 'manet was a bad painter!')
to mine eyes both cezanne and monet were GREAT painters.
as to pitting cunningham against taylor, the joust holds no interest for me. see each charging off in a different/opposite direction.

She: "Newsweek calls him the world's greatest living choreographer."
He: "What about Merce Cunningham?"
She: "I can't STAND Merce Cunningham."
He: "What about Mark Morris? And that woman who does the Broadway shows?"
She: (reading again) "The dance world regards him as a living legend."
He: "THAT I agree with."
Just thought I'd mention it.
