BWW Review: LA DANCE PROJECT Bombs at The JoyceBWW Review: LA DANCE PROJECT Bombs at The Joyce
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 27, 2016

Three men engage in acrobatic entanglements that transform from free-moving sculptural configurations to crumpled masses of bodies that roll all over the floor of a darkly lit fog filled stage. Resembling an improv-ed floor-work exercise full of incongruously musical acrobatic manipulations, this indulgent routine - replete with lingering touches and mashing of bodies into each other - revealed little about its performers and even less about itself the longer it went on.

BWW Dance Review: ABT's 'Shostakovich Trilogy' by RatmanskyBWW Dance Review: ABT's 'Shostakovich Trilogy' by Ratmansky
by Barnett Serchuk - May 31, 2016

A funny thing happened on the evening of May 22, 2016, at the Metropolitan Opera House, where ABT was presenting Alexei Ratmansky's 'Shostakovich Trilogy.' There were lots of empty seats. Since Ratmansky's reputation has pretty much enveloped the entire ballet world, I was very surprised to see this. On the other hand, an evening of three Shostakovich works can be enervating, putting high demands on the eyes and ears of an audience. Many might prefer to just stay away. (more...)

BWW Review: NEW YORK CITY BALLET Shows 21st Century ChoreographersBWW Review: NEW YORK CITY BALLET Shows 21st Century Choreographers
by Juan Michael Porter II - May 9, 2016

New York City Ballet, home to George Balanchine's vision of dance in America, is well known for commissioning new work. This devotion to innovation can result in work that runs the gamut from zestful to appalling. Case in point, the '21st Century Choreographers II' program on May 7th, 2016, which presented a hodgepodge of brilliant, ill conceived, entertaining, and 'not suited to house style'. (more...)

by Barnett Serchuk - Apr 28, 2016

To judge by Sunday's matinee on April 24, 2016, the New York City Ballet is in good dancing hands-shall I say excellent hands. If two of the three ballets that afternoon did not always meet the demands of the choreographic high level set forward by Balanchine, the dancing most certainly did. It was, to be understated, superb. (more...)
