    Khala Grupo de Dança – Maria

    This pas de deux is called “Maria” choreographed by Marcelo Cavalcanti and danced by Marcelo Cavalcanti and Patrícia Fabrin from the Khala Grupo de Danca in Brazil. The duet begins and ends in a pose just like the Michael Angelo Sculpture of Christ held in his Mother’s arms. The music sounds like Stabat Mater but I don’t know which one. The sculptural elements in the choreography are gorgeous made all the more so by the lighting which is simple creating [...]

  • Mark Morris Dance Group

    Mark Morris Dance Group

    Here is a montage of the Mark Morris Dance Group dancing clips from works created by chorographer and founder of the company, Mark Morris. Mark Morris has always been fascinating to me because he is a dancer and choreographer who has never been afraid to break or ignore conventions in dance, and push boundaries to create his own style of expression. Even his dance background was unconventional. He not only choreographs but also directs operas. So in a sense he [...]

    Alvin Ailey Revelations – Sinnerman

    Sinnerman is an excerpt from Alvin Ailey’s timeless masterpiece, Revelations. The whole ballet is phenomenal but I was just blown away by Sinnerman when I had the opportunity to see Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre live two nights in a row! The ground these dancers cover on a large stage is awesome. The attack, the superb skill and boundless energy of such amazing dancers makes this dance just spectacular live!

  • Transaquania – Into Thin Air

    Transaquania – Into Thin Air

    Transaquania – Into Thin Air, is a contemporary piece danced by the Icelandic Dance Company and choreographed by Erma Omarsdottir, Damien Jolet and Gabriela Fridtiksdottir. This is a very captivating piece, created with fascinating and strange organic “mutated” forms. Visually, wonderful with some beautiful patterns combined with unsettling and powerful images underscored by strange sounds in the musical score and lighting effects. Although I love the imagery, I find it intense and disturbing, especially with the use of gas masks [...]

  • Stravinsky Rite of Spring “Opening”

    Stravinsky Rite of Spring “Opening”

    Here is the opening section of the Rite of Spring choreographed by Pina Bausch, music by Stravinsky. One of many versions, but one I particularly love. Danced in earth, feet bare, women in simple skin toned dresses; evoke a powerful interplay of primal forces. Feminine vulnerability and fear of death against a backdrop of brutal power through masculine physical strength. You can “smell” the fear as it spreads virally through the group. The terror is palpable and so is the [...]

I had the great fortune seeing the Batsheva Dance Company perform the whole work live, and I was blown away, absolutely riveted [...]

  • Moon – Solo Dance by Yang LiPing

    Moon – Solo Dance by Yang LiPing

    Here is a beautiful solo by Chinese dancer Yang LiPing, contemporary to me in its rich abstract and minimal vocabulary of a quality rarely seen. I find her movement so elegant, sensual and exquisitely expressive. I am enchanted by her and her story. The contrasts in the image and movements are strong and sharp emphisized by her magical and some what whimsical silhouette. I love her big boots in contrast to her light and willowy figure, which ground her to the [...]

    Enjoy the clips from Ivan Perez’s Contemporary Ballet, FLESH. The movements have a simplicity and cleanliness that come so easily with good contact dance. The ease of creative weight bearing and shifting of the dancers bodies produces a gorgeous flow, seamless as water as they melt and mold together. Also, check out the reflections of the ensemble clips, where the dancers are reflected in what appears to be “black ice”…. Stunning!!! Watch these beautiful dancers and share it with your [...]
