Pam Tanowitz Joins Lineup for City Ballet’s Spring Gala

I happen to be a Tanowitz fangirl, so as far as I'm concerned, it's about time. Apparently, Tanowitz had originally been tapped to choreograph something for the Fall 2019 gala, but her commission was accelerated when one of the Spring 2019 choreographers had to drop out for personal reasons. Her work will be set to Bartok's Fifth String Quartet. 

Tanowitz was a student of Viola Farber, and some of that Cunningham heritage shows in her work, although she is very much her own choreographer. I once heard her declare "Oh! I LOVE petit allegro" during a post-performance Q&A.

This is so exciting! I've heard such incredible things about her work, can't wait to see her work with the talent at NYCB.

Tanowitz has already done some work with NYCB dancers at Vail, where she's also worked with dancers from ABT & MCB.
