A review of American Ballet Theatre by Leigh Witchel for dancelog.nyc.


Part of the demands of [Alonzo] King’s choreography is that sometimes he phrases, sometimes he just does steps. After technical sections for both the men and women in the ensemble, one woman, distinguished from the rest of the ensemble by gold accordion folds at her hips, pushed the men down before leaving. OK, but why?

King gave solos to the corps dancers, alternately following a hierarchy with the lead couples and ignoring it. The beat became more insistent and King responded with a more taut solo for a corps woman, but that ended abruptly almost as it began.
