"It was very interesting last year to see the sort of houses that we were drawing," says the 36-year-old Quinn, "and the very fact that the company feels able to bring contemporary choreography across the Atlantic shows just how guaranteed they are of tickets.

About dancers going off to do more dance inthe summer...
'That kind of perspective (dancing elsewhere), Ms. Whelan says, is particularly helpful to City Ballet dancers, who tend to live in an even more enclosed world than their counterparts at American Ballet Theater. "Our repertory is much more specific than most, with all the Balanchine and Robbins work," she said, "and we perform so intensively during the season that it's hard to get out and see other things."'

Funny how it was 'The Telegraph' that reported that Darcey was going to dance in Onegin in the first place way back in February or March.

Don't believe I ever saw it anywhere else though and now they say she isn't! Was she ever going to be dancing it in the first place I now ask myself?

Disgrace of a South Bank show that's going nowhere

Norman Lebrecht advises the Arts Council on what steps should be taken to save the South Bank centre
'The site is now on the verge of dereliction, a laughing-stock among European arts centres. Its functioning has become so slipshod that agents find it necessary to visit artists' dressing rooms before rehearsal to ensure there is a towel in the shower and that the towel has not been used by a previous occupant.'

   But with the best will in the world, no-one can predict how their body will react to pregnancy and birth - her "return to work" schedule was always pretty optimistic, and prior fitness is no guarantee of a trouble-free recovery from the changes that happen. Better that she takes things slowly than injures herself or gives substandard performances by returning too soon. For example, it takes a while before ligaments tighten again after pregnancy - it would be very easy to do lasting damage by over-exercising too soon. I'm sure there are lots of people out there who know more about this than I do, but in short, returning to world-class ballet 6 months after giving birth is quite a target to achieve! (either mentally OR physically) Another 3 months might just make all the difference to her.

As far as I am aware Darcey has never stated exactly when she was planning on performing again. In the Hello article she talked about what she would like to happen and how she would try to regain her fitness but from the way I read it nothing was cast in stone.

   Going from memory here, IIRC she was talking about swimming after a couple of months, fitness training then, class in October and performing around Xmas (I could have made some inferences or read between some lines; however, I'm sure she mentioned returning to the stage at Christmas). I hope I didn't come across as critical - I wasn't trying to say "What a dipstick, how on earth did she expect to manage that", more that it would be unwise of her fans to set their hearts on seeing her before the new year.

   The small article in The Telegraph on Tuesday mentioned that Darcey was pulling out of Onegin (therefore postponing her comeback) and was now planning on dancing in December.

Considering it was never published anywhere else that Darcey was dancing in Onegin in the first place I don't have much faith in the report. I think Darcey is far too sensible and realistic to have told anyone that she would be dancing in October, especially as the Telegraph first published this news in Feb or March months before Phoebe was even born.

I'm sure Darcey will not dance until she is completely back to full fitness and I was surprised that the RB announced her for The Nutcracker so early. Hope her fans won't be too disappointed if this doesn't happen!

"The company's strength in depth, where some of the most junior members confidently step into major roles, is an immense benefit, since choreographers can blithely give interesting solos to their supporting casts.

   David Dougill of the Sunday Times on NYCB at the Edinburgh Festival. Of Christopher Wheeldon's Mercurial Manoeuvres, he writes: "It is an impressively confident, fluently written work - full of neat ideas, well-handled ensembles, and with a speedy-jumpy focal role for the marvellously named Benjamin Millepied".
http://www.sunday-times.co.uk/news/pages/sti/2001/09/02/sticuldnc01002.html?

In the Observer Jann Parry, also writing about NYCB, says of Wheeldon "New York City Ballet, like every company, is desperately seeking the next genius to take ballet into the twenty-first century. Whether Wheeldon is indeed the saviour has yet to be proved, but Polyphonia gave more hope than anything else in the season".

http://enjoyment.independent.co.uk/theatre/dance/reviews/story.jsp?story=91864

Christopher Bowen of Scotland on Sunday is sceptical about the changes. "If Scotland canít afford to produce full-scale ballet (we canít and, Iíd argue, why should we, when with quid pro quo touring across the Scottish/English Border, others can provide it), let us create ballet-based dance that is sophisticatedly European in sensibility and distinctive within the UK".
http://www.scotlandonsunday.com/searchresults.cfm?id=SS01033188&keyword=ballet

Corrie Perkin of the Age assesses the state of Australian Ballet, where David McAllister has just succeeded Ross Stretton as Artistic Director. "Observers say that for the first time in years, the venetian blinds in the artistic director's glass office are open. "What was important to the dancers were things like communications skills, and an openness." McAllister added that even though the dancers had respected all their previous artistic directors, they were looking for a more mutually respectful relationship with whoever was appointed".

22. "RE: Sunday Links - 2nd"
In response to message #21
 
   A piece I missed earlier: Clifford Bishop previews Alvin Ailey Dance Company's forthcoming season in London, and describes how the company has flourished despite the death of its founder in 1989. Ailey's successor as Artistic Director, Judith Jamison tells the Sunday Times "When he died, it was the middle of the New York season, and we were so busy we just kept going. I never saw panic in anyone's face, except at the memorial service. There were 5,000 people at the church, standing around the outside, trying to see in. The casket was on a stage and we performed Revelations in front of it - it was beautifully done, beautifully done - and I remember someone broke down and cried: 'What are we going to do?' And I shrugged: 'We're doing it.'"
