BWW Reviews: LA SYLPHIDE and HEAR THE DANCE: DENMARK
May 28, 2015

The Danish choreographer August Bournonville, who predates the NYCBallet's founding by a century, still delights audiences with a repertory cultivated from his Royal Danish Ballet. His aesthetic sparks with joyful spontaneity, and even his most tragic works seem lightly brushed with a pastel warmth. The New York City Ballet attempts to reconcile their modernist magnitude with Bournonville's unselfconscious vitality in their 'Hear the Dance Denmark' program, which includes first act divertissements and the second act 'La Sylphide.'

BWW Reviews: OTHER MYTHS by Jonah Bokaer
May 8, 2015

Jonah Bokaer, renowned as the youngest ever Cunningham performer, continues his exploration of sculptural vitality in 'Other Myths.' At the Lightbox event space the audience clusters itself around a taped off dance floor. One by one the dancers stoically invade the dance space, accompanied by a pulsating soundscape and attired in dystopic humorless garb. Variations of the choreography are presented on the walls behind the audience. One of the videos presents the action from a stable perspective at a museum. The other video is a more raw/handheld point of view during a light rain.
