   Nadine Meisner reviews Richard Alston at the Place for the Independent. "We had seen it all from Alston many times before: the same dense stream of steps, the same entries and exits, the same dutiful matching of the music, the same solemn earnestness. Without the different scores and costumes it would have been hard to tell one piece from the other and the monotony became fatal".
http://enjoyment.independent.co.uk/theatre/dance/reviews/story.jsp?story=99429


From the LA Times a topic of lively interest to audiences in the UK - casting. "True balletomanes would never want to see just "The Nutcracker" or just the American Ballet Theatre "Nutcracker," but rather a particular lineup of stars in this familiar production. And if they can't find their beloved Angel Corella and Paloma Herrera dancing together--and this season they can't--they're likely to go more than once to check out how their favorites fare with other partners".

   The SF Chronicle reports the death of William Christensen, founder of San Francisco Ballet.
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/news/archive/2001/10/15/obituary0427EDT0013.DTL

Also from the SF Chronicle, a review of Ballet Nacional de Cuba in Alicia Alonso's version of Giselle. "More than all the classical complexity -- and the Cubans toss off impossible steps as if they were the easiest thing in the world -- there is real humanity in the dancing. This Coppelia matters because it makes us believe in the power of dance to reaffirm the best in all of us".

   Michael Clark is profiled by Debra Craine for the Times. "With maturity has come reappraisal. “Part of me had this old-fashioned romantic notion of the artist who would go as close to the edge as possible. Now I think that is redundant and unnecessary. I did use drugs to make a different kind of work, but the drugs weren’t necessary. “I’m much better now. I’m learning how to gather my thoughts. I’ve got some distance from all that now; I’ve let it go.”
http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,62-2001360298,00.html

The Cholmondeleys and the Featherstonehaughs reviewed by Donald Hutera in the Times.
http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,62-2001360299,00.html

Does Agon work in the concert hall? "As a showpiece for the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, it's unfailingly impressive", writes Tim Ashley in the Guardian.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/Archive/Article/0,4273,4278117,00.html

Jenny GIlbert in the Indie on Richard Alston. "Alston is pretty much unique in British contemporary dance for his adherence to the old-fashioned principle of welding steps to music, particularly classical music"

According to the Scotsman, Scottish Ballet threatens its own dancers with legal action unless they remove material from their website scottishballetcancers.com.

The Scotsman also has a short profile of Wayne McGregor.

The Irish Times reviews Samhain, the latest work from the folk dance theatre group, Siamsa Tire.
http://www.ireland.com/newspaper/features/2001/1016/fea2.htm

The Washington Post reviews Richard Move's Martha, soon coming to London in the Dance Umbrella season. "Cue the soaring strings of Aaron Copland's "Appalachian Spring," and enter Move's towering version of Graham -- he stands over six feet tall -- in a gold-trimmed gown and floor-length cape. "Yes, I am the mother of contemporary dance," he begins, listing various awards Graham garnered throughout her 96 years. "And I am a national treasure" -- dramatic pause -- "in Japan." His dramatically fringed eyeballs roll".

   Two late ones:
An Evening Standard piece on Michael Clarke:
Ballet's bad boy is back
by Luke Jennings
'As a precociously gifted 13-year-old he arrived at the Royal Ballet School from a seaside village in Aberdeenshire in 1975. His brilliance and his self-destructiveness swiftly became apparent. Within two years he had been caught glue-sniffing but was considered too valuable to expel: instead he was given the lead in the next school production'

Http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/dynamic/hottx/top_review.html?in_review_id=465474&in_review_text_id=419006

Also from the Standard:

Lords of dancing darkness
George Piper Dances Company: Mixed Programme
Luke Jennings on the Ballet Boyz debut at the Roundhouse:
'There are moments of fine and fluent beauty in all of this, for example, where Trevitt jackknifes weightlessly across Nunn's back, or leaps into a shoulder-lift as Nunn rises to his feet. The new Sibley and Dowell, perhaps?'

   Terpsicorps BY DEBRA CRAINE

The ballet boyz are back doing what they love best. Hurray!
'....they certainly got Russell Maliphant right. His Critical Mass, a duet for male dancers, provides a fantastic finale for them. Maliphant's piece is a mesmerising cross between a wrestling match and a tango, a tale of two bodies so close they seem to be driven by telepathic communication. It's a kind of physical intimacy you don't really get in classical ballet if you're a man, and it took Nunn and Trevitt months to come to grips with its power-sharing'.
Http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,62-2001361109,00.html

Why arts centres are things of the past
Liberate the arts from proprietorial interference, says Norman Lebrecht
'What Lincoln and South Bank have in common is their desperate need for a facelift. Both are showing their age. Lincoln Centre was designed in 1955 and opened piecemeal from 1962. The South Bank was lumped in cement and concrete around the RFH (1951)'
Http://c.moreover.com/click/here.pl?j26153655

Spoofing the Consummate Dance Revolutionary
Sarah Kaufman Washington Post Service on Richard Move's Martha Graham impersonation show:
'She (Graham) was an easy target for parody long before her death in 1991. She was the consummate revolutionary, rejecting ballet's vertical posture and substituting her own look. Graham choreographed grand passions - unbearable grief, ebullient love, the epic jealousies and rages of the Greek tragedies.'
Http://c.moreover.com/click/here.pl?j26155972

From the New York Times:
Ballet Theater Appoints New Director
By JENNIFER DUNNING
'The American Ballet Theater today named a veteran arts administrator as its new executive director after two years of board and staff resignations and backstage furor that rivaled any onstage drama.'
Http://adcontroller.unicast.com/upload/bomb/crea/bomb_create_a_v01_NY_Times_html_ad_doc.html


The Melbourne Age profiles William Forsythe. " His dancers, though not necessarily the best of classical ballet dancers, all have a "level of coordinational mastery that few people have and extraordinary physical and mental acuity". "I have the cream of the crop," he said proudly."

   Judith Mackrell on Mark Morris and the premiere of his new work 'V'. "This is a dance of fantastically ambitious extremes. While Morris can confidently fill the stage with bright joyous invention, he can suddenly flatten the dance into the deepest troughs of Schumann's despair - forcing his fleet, grown-up dancers to crawl the stage in an abject crabwise formation that is as visually shocking as it is musically apt. By the end V has embraced so much danger and triumph, wit and melancholy that its jubilant conclusion seems to have been won with as much sweat and vision as Schumann's closing chords. A classic".
http://www.guardian.co.uk/Archive/Article/0,4273,4279051,00.html

Luke Jennings of the Evening Standard's view of 'V': "from the opening moment, when the allegro brillante bursts into life and Morris's company are revealed in an expectant diagonal, the mood is one of Apollonian joy. Michael Chybowski's lighting suggests an azure-skied Parnassus, while Morris' s blue-clad dancers seem to leap through colliding motes of sunshine. This, the five instruments simultaneously proclaim, is the morning of the world".
http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/dynamic/hottx/theatre/top_dance_review.html?in_review_id=463762&in_review_text_id=419139

   It's a Mark Morris kinda day:

The stuff of dreams - and nightmares
Ismene Brown reviews the Mark Morris Dance Group at the Sadler's Wells Theatre
'These are the unforgettable things - the sunburst of arabesques in Balanchine's Apollo, those writhing, hellish upside-down legs in Ashton's Dante Sonata, the submissive heads of Ivanov's swans. Now add to that choice gallery the gross, crawling insects in Morris's V.'
Http://www.telegraph.co.uk/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=V1FGZPPx&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/01/10/18/btang18.html

Jubilant premiere at Sadler's Wells
Judith Mackrell on the Mark Morris Dance Group
'By the end, V has embraced so much danger and triumph, wit and melancholy, that one feels its jubilant conclusion has been won with as much sweat and vision as Schumann's closing chords. A classic.'
Http://www.guardian.co.uk/Archive/Article/0,4273,4279580,00.html

Mark Morris Dance Group, Sadler's Wells, London
By Nadine Meisner
'Peccadillos is the latest in a series of sensational solos for Morris in which this burly 45-year-old – his paunch gets bigger with every visit – dances with an unexpectedly nimble grace and precision. Using three nursery piano pieces by Satie (including Peccadilles importunes), the visual concept is brilliant. Morris's adult figure is joined on stage by a tiny toy grand piano at which (the equally adult) Ethan Iverson sits and plays.'
Http://www.independent.co.uk/story.jsp?story=100023

Turning it on BY DEBRA CRAINE A world premiere from the Mark Morris company is a real treat for London
'With V, his world premiere unveiled at the Wells (and continuing there until Saturday), it goes one step further. So perfect is Morris's visual realisation of Schumann's aural imagination that it's almost as if the choreography came first and the music came afterwards, Schumann directing the notes from his grave.'
Http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,62-2001361867,00.html

Vital Morris makes us believe
By Clement Crisp
'You watch Mark Morris's dances and you see the music. There have been, in all conscience, other choreographers as musically apt, witty, subtle. Not one, in my experience, offers Morris's combination of seeming innocent exposition of a score - there are subliminal links with the "music realisations" of pioneering American free-dance in the 1920s - with such receptiveness to the music's inner life.'Http://timeoff.ft.com/ft/gx.cgi/ftc?pagename=View&c=Article&cid=FT3ATU7FXSC&live=true&tagid=ZZZFXM1ZXZB


The New York Times on Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker:
A Wind Scatters Dancers and Gathers Them Back
By JACK ANDERSON
'Ms. De Keersmaeker varied her choreography by having dancers occasionally leave the stage, only to return moments later, and by having the pace occasionally slow down, then quicken again. But the choreographic wind never stopped blowing; it might scatter the dancers, but it always gathered them back together.'
Http://www.nytimes.com/2001/10/18/arts/dance/18DRUM.html

From the Los Angeles Times, an appreciation of Herbert Ross:
Herbert Ross' Literate Touch Will Be Missed
Among the director's feats was finding ways to keep alive the tradition of musicals.
'.. he demonstrated extraordinary inventiveness in finding ways to keep the musical tradition alive at a time when others gave up on it. He made three serious movies about ballet: "The Turning Point," "Nijinsky" and "Dancers"—as well as a successful pop musical, "Footloose," ' http://www.calendarlive.com/top/1,1419,L-LATimes-Calendar-X!ArticleDetail-45334,00.html

The Independent's obituary of Charles Stewart, book illustrator, designer, ballet dancer, collector and teacher:
Charles W. Stewart
'Few leading book illustrators can once have danced in the corps de ballet at Covent Garden, but Charles W. Stewart was proud to have done so. Not long after he became a student at Byam Shaw School of Drawing and Painting, in 1932, the Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo came to London and Stewart fell under its spell.'

   Today's selection (with considerable input from Brendan):

From the Independent (via the Financial Times service):
A crisp, clear Danish export Johan Kobborg is an exemplar of the Danish school of ballet. But, finds Nadine Meisner, he very nearly became a singer
Http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/article.html?id=011019000735&query=ballet

From yesterday's Scotsman:
Scottish Ballet to press ahead with its proposed changes despite opposition, according to the Scotsman.
http://www.thescotsman.co.uk/text_only.cfm?id=117250

From the Sydney Morning Herald:
Jill Sykes on William Forsythe's Eidos Telos, which Ballet Frankfurt are bringing to London next month. "The end of Eidos: Telos takes your breath away. Thirty dancers fill the stage with chaos that is ordered, moving at frantic speed that is nonetheless paced. On and on they go to a conclusion that is orgasmic in its intensity without being ecstatic. The end. Curtain".
Http://www.smh.com.au/news/0110/19/entertainment/entertain12.html
From the Melbourne Age, Robin Usher, also on Eidos:Telos.
"It is a matter of debate if audience members also need courage to sit through a performance. There is nothing easy or comforting about Eidos: Telos".
http://www.theage.com.au/entertainment/2001/10/19/FFX2KGEGXSC.html
From the Missisippi Clarion-Ledger:
Gold medalists to open ballet competition in Jackson
'Young dancers vie for gold, silver and bronze medals, cash awards and scholarships. They might also catch the eye of an artistic director and make a grand jeté in career advancement'
Http://www.clarionledger.com/news/0110/18/m02.html

Finally, a strange but hilarious story from the Daily Californian:
Dances with Cubans
'An hour before curtain call I walked into the men's dressing room to find a dozen boys virtually naked in ballet loin cloths applying makeup and exchanging vulgarities in rapid Cuban Spanish.
"Eh, Jaimé," a man with thick mascara said, "Dame tus huevos. Tengo un hambre tremendisimo!" '

   Two more Richard Buckle obituaries. From the Telegraph: The Scots Guards' history records Lieutenant Buckle's skill in collecting eggs, and notes that they were not the only commodity he sought. "A brother officer alleged that he 'walked on to the German lines in daylight, rummaged at will, and usually returned with old curious books, abstruse and pornographic. One day he came back with a bridal dress which he wore for dinner.' "
http://www.dailytelegraph.co.uk/obituary?ac=006327343236617&rtmo=0KeRxJKq&atmo=rrrrrrrq&pg=/01/10/19/db01.html

The Scotsman's Richard Buckle obituary
http://www.thescotsman.co.uk/text_only.cfm?id=117301

Frankfurter Allgemeine on Moulin Rouge: "It is a fascinating attempt to create something completely new from a variety of used parts. "Moulin Rouge" takes Jean-Luc Godard's provocative statement literally that he found his movie on a garbage dump. The movie is an exclusive combination of clichés that are put together in new ways".

Where art thou, Juliet?
Judith Mackrell on Rene Harris:
'His own story could easily have been lost with those of his friends who he watched "join gangs, deal drugs and ruin their lives". But, at the age of eight, he developed an obsession that was to lead him on to a different turf entirely: he discovered dance'

From The New York Times:
Reinterpreting Classics, Celebrating Men's Lives

Jennifer Dunning on Lar Lubovitch
'Lar Lubovitch can tell a story, a rare gift in today's modern dance. Even better, he seems to assume that his audience knows how to think. And his narrations tend to plunge right into the tale, without any tiresome scene-setting, in luscious movement that is one of the chief pleasures of his choreography.'
Http://c.moreover.com/click/here.pl?j26354071

Green Woodland Sprites, Perhaps From the 18th Century
By JENNIFER DUNNING
Jennifer Dunning on Leigh Witchell's work. (Witchell is a frequent and much-valued contibutor to Balletalert's posting pages).
'Mr. Witchel's love for the pure classical canon, which his immaculately trained dancers obviously share, was seen to best advantage in "Green." Set to mellifluous music by Franz Berwald, a little-known 19th- century composer, "Green" appears to pay homage to the tableaus and divertissements typical of late 18th- century ballet..'
Http://c.moreover.com/click/here.pl?j26354073

The Melbourne Age on the Melbourne Festival:
'Nudity featured in the program's two operas, as well as in a composition by Ballett Frankfurt's William Forsythe, Eidos: Telos. What is unusual, even for modern dance, is that its central section includes an extended monologue. The narrative also includes a string of invective by a character shocked to find himself in the land of the dead. "I'll cut out your kidneys and sell them over the Internet," is just one of his threats.'

From the Sunday Times:
Nadine Meisner interviews Ross Stretton
'I like great people, like Sylvie Guillem and Darcey Bussell, who have something to say, who challenge. I want every dancer in the Royal Ballet to be like that, not just be that back-line corps de ballet person. Yes, you've got to do Swan Lake and stay in line, but everybody has a heart and I want to see it.'

Bolshie ballet
Gillian Bowditch interviews Michael Clarke:
'His hair is cropped as is his beard. His spaniel eyes are surprisingly lifeless. I can't even see his feet - a source of fetishism for dance aficionados - beneath his outsized trousers. He looks as if he's had a rough night.'

This piece on the Melbourne Festival from today's 'Melbourne Age' covers more than just dance, but is so interesting that it merits inclusion here. It is refreshingly critical of William Forsythe's choreography:
'With few exceptions, the main dance events at the festival have been duds. This year American choreographer William Forsythe and his multinational Frankfurt Ballet did not let the side down. Their Eidos:Telos was an exhaustingly awful assault on the audience's ears, eyes, sensibilities and intelligence.'

Lewis Segal of the Los Angeles Times raves about the National Ballet of Cuba (why doesn't somebody bring them over here, please, and quickly?)

'National Ballet of Cuba remains a monument to the finesse, vitality and vision of . Get it while you can: There are very few places where ballet is so fully alive.'

   Oh dear, apologies. None of those links appear to be working. I'm going to try again in a minute.

By the way, I've just read my Sunday Telegraph and there's an excellent interview of Tamara Rojo by Louise Levene. This, sadly, will definitely be unavailable online.

   Here's the link to the Observer piece, but the other three pieces - Nadine Meisner's long interview with Ross Stretton, Gillian Bowditch's interview with Michael Clarke and David Dougill's Sunday Times review of Mark Morris and GPD - remain elusive. If anyone can find them, please post!
