BWW Dance Review: Juilliard Spring Dances, March 27, 2019.BWW Dance Review: Juilliard Spring Dances, March 27, 2019.
by Barnett Serchuk - Apr 1, 2019

How sad it was that the same night that I attended the opening of the Juilliard School's Spring Dances 2019, Lawrence Rhodes, the previous director of Juilliard's Dance Division, former head of NYU's Tisch School of Dance, and a damned good dancer himself, passed away. What does one say? It's sad, but knowing the Division is now in the hands of the excellent Alicia Graf Mack and that the performance was of such high caliber-we should all be grateful for the work he did and the legacy he's passed on.

BWW Dance Review: ANALOGY/TRILOGY at Eisenhower Theater, Kennedy CenterBWW Dance Review: ANALOGY/TRILOGY at Eisenhower Theater, Kennedy Center
by Mary Lincer - Mar 30, 2019

The second section of Bill T. Jones' Analogy/Trilogy, Lance: aka Pretty the Escape Artist, uses sound design, collage, projection, samples, a score by Nick Hallett, and quotations from Jones' conversations with his nephew Lance T. Briggs along with Jones' choreography to abstract Briggs' biography into this engrossing theatre piece. Jones shares choreography credits with his original cast. The strength of the dancers and the dancing surpasses every other element. The nine performers create scenes and episodes from Briggs' life: his audition for the San Francisco ballet as an 8 year old boy; his various cabarets and drag performances in New York and across Europe; his performance as a 'working girl' in The Castro.

by Rachael Goldberg - Mar 29, 2019

'Dora: Tramontane' may be the first of a trilogy, but it has the power to stand on its own as well as part of a set. The work is breathtaking and emotional, and - like any good piece of art - stays with you long after the final bows. If the rest of the 'Analogy Trilogy' is even half as good, it's well worth getting to the Kennedy Center this weekend. (more...)
