by Barnett Serchuk - Jun 20, 2017

I don't know if it was me, but attending L.A. Dance Project on June 14, 2017, was a bit dispiriting. If this was an evening meant to deliver the L.A. Dance Project message: 'we're here folks, watch out, we're going to overtake the dance world,' it didn't register. What should have been a strong cold brew was tepid tea. (more...)

The night feels like a quick tour through the dance and music of the past 100 years, starting with the jazz of George Gershwin and ending with the frenetic electronica of Dan Deacon. There's something for everyone here, whether you prefer your ballet classical or contemporary. (more...)

Today's subject Taylor Stanley is living his theatre life as a company member of  New York City Ballet (NYCB), one of the most famous and prestigious ballet companies in the country.

BWW Review: NEW YORK CITY BALLET's THE DECALOGUEBWW Review: NEW YORK CITY BALLET's THE DECALOGUE
by Wesley Doucette - May 24, 2017

Justin Peck's newest work, 'The Decalogue,' was placed at the far end of a daunting program this past Thursday as part of New York City Ballet's expansive 'Here/Now' festival. Following Lynne Taylor-Corbett's resonate 'Chiaroscuro,' Jorma Elo's sublime 'Slice to Sharp,' and Peter Martins' transportive, if overlong, 'Stabat Mater,' the sting of anticlimax would have been difficult to avoid for even the most robust work. The evening's narrative was moving to an aesthetic statement, but riding these pieces was also a burden of archaic catharsis which 'The Decalogue' is not equipped to shoulder. However, if dislodged from the context of the program, Justin Peck's newest work represents his most mature excavation of dance form and gives hope that ballet can be not simply dressed up in new fashion, but have its soil tilled for invigorating innovation.
