National Ballet of Japan's "New Year Ballet" will be available to watch online live on January 11th. (it was cancelled due to a staff diagnosed with COVID-19 but none of the dancers tested positive) 
The performance will be held without audience and be streamed on Jan. 11 at 14:00 JST (UTC +9) for FREE but it will not be archived. Time difference is 14 hours from North America East coast so perhaps difficult for some US residents to watch but a rare opportunity to catch Bintley's Still Life at Penguin Cafe.

The ballet of the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz streamed Marco Goecke's La Strada (based on the movie by Federico Fellini and music by Mino Rota) last night and it is still available on their YouTube channel.



It is unfortunate this wasn't posted for longer. The choreography was so creative and engaging. This is the type of dance that I think translates well on film- so I hope to see more exploration of these types of works, at least in this "digital" era.
