Fall Digital Season


Recommended Posts

Haha, that’s a pet peeve of mine too! They must have heard it that way early on at SAB and it stuck. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Also: P.S. I hate it when dancers pronounce "pas de deux" as "pas de duh."   Why do they do it?  It seems almost every NYCB dancer says this!

I've heard the French pronounce it and it's actually more like "pas de dyoo." "Pas de duh" just sounds so ... uninspired.

Hm, is it really? I am French and definitely do not pronounce it "dyoo". 😅

Edited to add: this is how I say it:

I'm delighted to see that NYCB has been able to pull off a program of new works during a lockdown. 

PS: I don't know the work of Jamar Roberts, but I do know the work of Bell, Miller, and Tanowitz, and I'm eager to see what they've been able to do given the constraints they've had to work under.

I look forward to seeing all my favorite dancers in real time, that is, current performances rather than from years ago. I especially look forward to the solo for Russell Janzen. Glad to see that Harrison Coll is dancing again, he was out for what seemed like a long, long time. The number with Ghaleb Kayali, Emily Kikta, Mira Nadon, and Peter Walker is going to be very, very tall. Looking forward!

Reasons to celebrate the 21st Century (in so many ways on temporary global hold just now it seems) are certainly here.  Nowhere else do Ratmansky, Wheeldon and Peck do better work.  Nowhere.  There are also embedded within these 54 minutes (and 33 seconds) some glorious performances to savour.  For a moment in Mercurial Movements when the ever exquisite Tiler Peck dashed on I thought it was Patricia McBride reborn in dance.  Entirely enervating.  The eternally evocative Taylor Stanley - those eyes; those eyes - is mesmeric in 'X' from Ratmansky's witty Russian Dances and how wonderful to be able to see the choreographer himself (i.e., Justin Peck) proudly revel in the PDD and final movement of his thrilling Rodeo, encapsulating the very definition of 'Community' such as Balanchine and Robbins would see (and hear) define NYCB every bit as much as Shakespeare did his best plays.  Happily - and gloriously - it still does.  It reigns.  This is - IMHO at least - a feast.  Enjoy.
