    Simone Messmer

    There was a terrific livestream this evening at 6 pm of grangalaporlosninos.org, a benefit put together by Julio Bocca's foundation. Many artists contributed. I am sorry, but I don't have detailed information on who/what/when. Around the 22:30 minute mark, Simone dances "Allure," the solo made on her by Demis Volpi. Beautiful piece, powerful dancing. She mentioned on her Facebook and Instagram pages.
  4. Yes, it is Tamisha Guy. She is a powerful and beautiful dancer.
  5. She and her husband also designed Miami City Balletโ€™s new Nutcracker. RIP.๐Ÿ’

    She is dancing in Serenade and Artifact. If anyone is able to attend perfomances, please report! ๐Ÿ’
  7. This is a magnificent production--- Zack Brown did the designs, Graham has added many interesting nuances, and it is a completely rewarding experience for anyone seeing it. Highly recommended!
  8. Alas, Simone Messmer did not dance Saturday or Sunday. Lauren Fadeley did the Company B โ€œI can dream...โ€ role for all three performances.
  9. And now this: https://nypost.com/2018/09/06/show-doesnt-go-on-for-dancer-accused-of-sharing-explicit-pics/
  10. Your sources? "Punters" embraces a rather large range of the audience spectrum.......
  11. I agree about the high cost of parking at KenCen........lately, I drive to the Metro and take it to Foggy Bottom.
  12. and they wonder why they aren't selling tickets? ONE week, and they throw R & J at us. So stupid. Especially given the Martins debacle, why not program Coppelia, or some such?
  13. Ms. Scheller's partner in the Cortege pdd segment is Chas. Askegard.
  14. Actually, second cast pulled out of this afternoon. First cast on Sunday.
  15. Perhaps the move up in the theatre was at fault, but: Lauren Fadely danced the ballerina role in Walpurgisnacht both Friday and Saturday nights. She is pictured above. Simone Messmer does not dance Walpurgisnacht. She is 5'5" and not, by any stretch of the imagination, bulky. The gypsy and bride costumes she wears are long and heavy. They almost completely obliterate the dancer's movements. The lighting does not help, the solid dead white of the bridal dress calling attention to the fabric, rather than the dance. Jeanette Delgado looked stunning in her bridal gown and it lent a lovely, flowing touch to her variations, rather than hindering a quicker, more quicksilver quality of the Fairy. It also fit her properly (Simone's was much too loose and too long.) I attended both performances this weekend, and will see the matinee tomorrow. I reserve judgement until I see the same cast again tomorrow.
