  1. I'm still thinking about how Sofiane would (at least in my imagination) be a wonderful AD. What about Edwaard Liang? He's been getting experience leading BalletMet, he's choreographed for SFB and many other companies, former NYCB dancer, doesn't have "history" from being in the company with the current set of dancers (so perhaps less conflict of interest than some of the others), and I believe he's a Bay Area native.
  2. Lizzy Powell posted a brief IG story of the company learning Forsythe's "Blake Works". https://instagram.com/stories/lizzypowell222/2520081945141051361?igshid=tq91fcwecazo
  3. Ezra Hurwitz, a former Miami City Ballet dancer and dance filmmaker, directed the video. He's collaborated with SFB and many others in the past, and I believe he's also partners w/Gonzalo Garcia (former SFB and current NYCB principal).
  4. Really enjoyed Colorforms as part of Program 2, so much so I've re-watched it several times. The visual richness, quick and playful editing, and camaraderie that I think many of us are missing these days... Myles Thatcher hit it out of the park with this one. I'm curious how it'll translate to the stage in the future.
  5. The program 5 change is also interesting and surprising given Cathy Marston's recent IG post praising the recording and dancers' performances. https://www.instagram.com/p/CLbgSvUANcZ/?igshid=xybionh1paoj
  6. An email update today from SFB on Program 5: Programming Change for Program 05
  7. Is Harmony no longer part of the regular season? Or maybe it never was?
  8. Gotta say, I love the idea of Sofiane as AD. She seems to check off all the boxes (I don't think she's a big schmoozer (sp?), but she has glamourous name recognition) plus she doesn't seem to be buddy-buddy with a bunch of the current dancers, which I think would be key for a new AD (from IG, Gonzalo and a few others are still close friends with current dancers on the roster, which could present potential conflicts of interest). Considering that, I'd have former principal dancer and choreographer Parrish Maynard (ballet master at Kansas City Ballet) on my list. Any thoughts on Larissa Ponomare
  9. Might as well add Tiit Helimets to the growing list. He's been coaching SFB dancers for the past few years.
  10. https://datebook.sfchronicle.com/dance/helgi-tomasson-to-step-down-at-s-f-ballet-in-2022-after-nearly-40-years-at-the-helm "Helgi Tomasson will step down as artistic director and principal choreographer of the San Francisco Ballet by June 2022, the company announced Wednesday, Jan. 6." "“This had been on my mind for a while, even before the pandemic,” he said in a video interview over Zoom. “And as I assess where we are now, I feel the company has come through this very well."
  11. From the comments, it looks like Angelo Greco is no longer with SFB...?
  12. I'm not quite sure where to put this (totally unexpected) news. SFB just announced on social media (Facebook and IG stories) that Julian MacKay is joining the company as a principal. Here's the press release.
  13. From a logistics perspective, holding the full lengths until the end may be wise to allow the company members to better socially distance themselves until there is (cross those fingers) a vaccine. Full lengths mean the entire company (and towards the end, crew and orchestra) is hanging out constantly.
