2006-2007 Season

Recommended Posts

PNB's 2006-2007 season is announced on its website.

I know the company is working to make it's Celebrate Seattle Festival clear for subscription renewals. The Festival runs three weeks. Weeks 1 & 2 includes 8 performances of the same program - a mixed bill that functions as Rep 5 of the regular season. Festival Week 3 includes 3 alternating programs.

Doug, thank you so much for the link! I received the early renewal letter, and there was no mention of the Celebrate Seattle Festival. I'm really excited that included on the Program A are works from the 2005 Choregraphy Workshop; it's great that some of those pieces will be seen again.

It's funny to see a Kent Stowell World Premiere on the schedule. I don't know if anyone believed he'd be happy just cooking and living the island life :(

Anyone know where I can find a schedule of when this group performs and where?

The www.independance.co.uk/artists/rubberbandancegroup.htm site does not seem to include dates or venues.

I saw Pilobolus for the first time this summer at UW and want more of the same (well, OK, maybe similar then :))!

Very, very glad to see Mark Morris on the schedule!

I would be too. Does Morris keep up any kind of special relationship wtih the Seattle area where he started out? Or with PNB?

Mark Morris' company is regularly on the UW World Dance Series. There's no Morris on the PNB Active Repertory list.

In interviews when choreographing for San Francisco Ballet, Morris has lauded the company for meeting his standards. Pacific was choreographed in 1995 for SFB for the "United We Dance" Festival honoring the 50th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter, and it will be great to see PNB in the piece.

The MMDG website has the following info on the work:


Music: Lou Harrison (Trio for Violin, Cello & Piano, 3rd & 4th movements)

Costume Design: Martin Pakledinaz

Lighting Design: James F. Ingalls

Dancers: 9

Premiere: 05/09/95 Location: (San Francisco Ballet), War Memorial Opera House, San Francisco, CA

It's revival in 2000-1 earned an Izzie nomination for the company. In a nice tie-in, Christopher Stowell created one of the leads in the ballet. Anna Kisselgoff describes it in a 1995 review in the New York Times. When presented by the company as part of it's Fall 1995 season, Kisselgoff described it as

Mr. Morris is definitely not a classical choreographer at heart, and "Pacific" is a modern-dance work in disguise performed by strong classical dancers.
