   LAST EDITED ON 31-12-01 AT 12:45 PM (GMT)

In the New Year's Honours lists, the Times reports, Siobhan Davies becomes a CBE; Monica Mason, Assistant Director of the Royal Ballet is an OBE, while John Percival the Independent's dance critic, is awarded an MBE. Congratulations to them all.
http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,463-2001605280,00.html

Argentina seeks emotional solace in the tango as its economy falls apart, according to the Times. "The tango says it all. Many tunes talk about what a glorious, rich country and people we could have been and lament the greatness that never was,” Soledad Martinez said as she queued outside La Estrella, a tango haunt in the Buenos Aires district of Palermo Viejo. “I always try and find some money to come here. It’s a kind of therapy to deal with it all.”
http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,3-2001605198,00.html

From Saturday's Glasgow Herald, reflections on forthcoming changes at Scottish Ballet: "One might ask what is the point of having a Scottish ballet company if it doesn't plan to do the great ballets. It is like the English Shakespeare Company saying it is sick of doing Shakespeare. It would be much cheaper to do something with a lot fewer actors that didn't require such a big theatre".

   Happy New Year. I had expected that today's papers would be rather thin, but there are a few stories about.

In a Telegraph feature on artists to watch for in 2002, Ismene Brown writes about Alina Cojocaru. "Inexperienced though she is, Cojocaru is remarkably resourceful in imagining emotions where she has never felt them. In a year or two, she may have lost some of the dew on her wings but she should mature with fabulous results".
http://www.portal.telegraph.co.uk/arts/main.jhtml?xml=/arts/2002/01/01/bacs201.xml&sSheet=/arts/2002/01/01/ixtop.html

Jenny Gilbert in the Independent on the Moscow Stanislavsky Ballet's Snow Maiden. "Why the company agreed to make this creaking vehicle carry their UK debut is a mystery, considering the company is currently run by Dmitry Bryantsev, Russia's leading contemporary dance-maker. Granted, Snow Maiden does have a certain historical cachet, being the first work ever created by a Soviet choreographer for a company in the West (and that company was London Festival Ballet, now ENB). Plus it's sort of wintry. And perhaps it was thought that Bourmeister's being grand-nephew of Tchaikovsky might put bums on seats. But in the event the bums couldn't wait to leave them".
http://enjoyment.independent.co.uk/theatre/dance/reviews/story.jsp?story=112237

The Scotsman has a feature on the Scottish School of Contemporary Dance in Dundee, where classes begin next week. "If there is a watchword for the entire development, it would be "performance". In addition to the 200-seat auditorium - the first purpose-built dance performance space in Scotland - there are small performance spaces nestling in every corner, in the garden, even in the students’ lounge area".
http://www.thescotsman.co.uk/s2.cfm?id=82002

Julie Van Camp writes for Aesthetics Online about the role of the philosopher, and other theorists, in university dance departments. "The theoretical study of dance, using the broad content and methodology of the humanities, is still far less developed than in those other arts. And there is much less in the way of rigorous dialogue among well-trained scholars in the various theoretical disciplines".
http://aesthetics-online.org/ideas/vancamp.html

Boston's Jose Mateo Ballet Company, which has just moved into new studios, is profiled in the NY Times. " Mr. Mateo is on a mission that's immeasurably enhanced by having his own home and performance space. "To fulfill the artistic objective it's necessary to have systematic training, a movement style with integrity and integrated choreography," he said. "I want to train a thinking dancer, more than a cold pyrotechnical instrument whose persona swings from bravura to aloof and who mechanically articulates someone else's idea. I hope our new space will draw athletic virtuosos willing to be artistically, dramatically and psychologically involved in collaborative choreography so the inner dynamics of the dancer's mind provides the springboard motivating the movement."

   Happy New Year

Another from the Scotsman about the SACs plans and the coming year for dance in Scotland

The SAC strategy document "lays out SAC’s intention to bring quality large-scale ballet to Scotland, the first of which will be the renowned Birmingham Royal Ballet, who play the Edinburgh Festival Theatre in June."

   Ismene Brown in the Telegraph on the Snow Maiden and ENB's Nutcracker (The Telegraph's links seem to have changed so that you get into a sort of lobby before you get into the main article):

'This is the last year of Deane's Nutcracker, which the new ENB director Matz Skoog intends to replace next year with a version choreographed by the rising Christopher Hampson. He may not have many difficulties in capping the choreography of the big dance numbers, particularly Deane's snow scene, but as far as drama and style are concerned, Deane's goes out on a commendably strong note with a performance such as Edur's.'

Http://www.portal.telegraph.co.uk/arts/main.jhtml;$sessionid$FUJSXIQAAEST1QFIQMGSFF4AVCBQWIV0?xml=/arts/2002/01/02/btisme02.xml&sSheet=/arts/2002/01/02/ixartleft.html

Despite the headline this Jennifer Dunning piece in the New York Times is a general look at the dance scene in New York:

Dueling Tributes to Graham Legacy

Http://www.nytimes.com/2002/01/02/arts/dance/02DANC.html


Two articles from an interestring new source, spotted on Balletalert and reproduced here with Alexandra's permission:

An admiring piece by Clive Barnes on Frederick Ashton:

'Movement flowed from him, like magic thread from a spool. He was not unduly inventive - watching him create in rehearsal was at times a frustrating experience. Sometimes he would ask a dancer to make up a phrase - and then another, and still another. Eventually, he would find what he wanted, often seeming as much an editor as a creator. And the dancers, if inexperienced, would imagine that they were making up the dance themselves. They were not. It was Ashton's special way of going about his craft, molding dance to music - behaving more as a sculptor than a painter.'

Http://www.mirella-dance.com/Issue1.html

.....and a piece by Tobi Tobias on today's dearth of real ballerinas:

'It may take a female dancer, magnified exponentially until she seems more goddess than human, to make the proceedings on the classical-dance stage cohere and reverberate to the point of moving the viewer to ecstasy. (This sense of life amplified and glorified is what transforms otherwise reasonably normal folks into balletomanes..) But what, exactly, is this creature we term a ballerina?'

   LAST EDITED ON 02-01-02 AT 10:13 AM (GMT)

A few links to add on the issue of ballet and homosexuality. There is a fascinating obituary in the Times for the former historian and journalist John Grigg. He it was, who as obituaries editor of the Times, published some rather severe reflections on Robert Helpmann's homosexuality after his death, and started a bitter controversy in doing so.
http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,60-2002000174,00.html

In the American conservative weekly, National Review, (not a likely source of material for anything on dance), I found the following. They are two pieces by John Derbyshire, the first reasonably mild-mannered, with such observations as "The dance correspondent of the London Daily Telegraph told me that if you want to strike up a conversation with a ballerina, an infallible opening move is to enquire about her latest injury. I once had seats near the very front of the stalls for a performance of the MacMillan Manon, and noticed that, as the principals froze in the final position of the last act, the male lead — it was Anthony Dowell — was panting like a marathon runner and sweating like a horse. Physical, definitely".
http://www.nationalreview.com/derbyshire/derbyshire121801.shtml

But a second piece by Derbyshire for the National Review is more controversial. It begins: "In Tuesday's column, which was about ballet, I passed a comment on the movie Billy Elliot, expressing the opinion that it was "not bad, if you ignored the ingredient of homosexual propaganda that seems to be compulsory in British movies nowadays." And it continues in similar vein.

   Another bad links day - I've been unable to find anything at all in the UK papers (although there may be something in the Guardian - I couldn't get in).

From the Cleveland 'Plain Dealer', a report on Balletmet's new AD and new Artistic Associate, Gerard Charles and Stanton Welch respectively

BalletMet Columbus choreographs deal to pair two talented men at helm

'When acclaimed Australian choreographer Stanton Welch was invited to Columbus to audition for the job, he fell in love with the city, the company, its staff and its performing home in the magnificent Ohio Theatre. The son of two artistic directors, he, too, was aware of the difficulty of the job. Besides, he held a prestigious position as resident choreographer of the Australian Ballet, and his career was zooming with guest engagements around the world.'

Another lean day, though as yesterday I've been unable to get into the Guardian:

The Independent's John Percival on the Moscow Stanislavsky Ballet's 'Snow Maiden'

'During four decades since The Snow Maiden was created, we have had two British companies that put equal emphasis on drama and dance: Northern Ballet Theatre and, most successfully, Western Theatre Ballet, which became the Scottish Ballet under its founder director and choreographer Peter Darrell.'

   I hope this link works.

The Frankfurter Allgemeine reviews a version of Giselle by the French choreographer Maryse Delente, who surprising dispenses with male characters, focussing only on the Wilis, lost souls of young women who died betrayed in love. Aolphe Adam, Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot turned them into seductresses that kill men by dancing with them until they die of exhaustion. Delente frees them of these roles and lifts them to the higher ground of the "better self." They are beautiful, innocent and divinely graceful".

   Louise Levene in the Telegraph on the 'Sugar Plum Cash Cow'. "I was afraid the children would all get the fidgets for the more serious dancing of the second act but they were stunned into respectful silence by the bounding Russian dance, by the twinkling toes of the Sugar Plum Fairy and every one of them clapped till their hands burned. Barbie and a cheap ticket got them through the door but it was ballet itself that held them spellbound.
Link to article


The Times has a profile of Joaquin Cortes. "Now 32, he is just a year shy of the age at which he has often said that he will retire. The Joaquín Unplugged approach suggests that he is choosing to meet the critics armed with nothing but his craft and new Armani threads. And if the Cortés-phobes still aren’t convinced that they haven’t long to wait until he hangs up his shoes: “It has nothing to do with being the age that Christ died,” he says. “I only have blood on my feet, not on my hands.”
http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,342-2001600970,00.html

Kelly Apter writes for the Scotsman on St Petersburg Ballet. "The Kirov still plays an active part in St Petersburg’s success, offering practical help and inspiration. Most significantly, they feed from the same bowl. Most dancers in both companies graduated from the Vaganova Academy, an institute steeped in history, which prides itself on "taking children from all over Russia and the world and turning them into instruments of artistic and creative perfection". That may sound clinical, but you don’t produce dancers like Rudolf Nureyev, Anna Pavlova and Mikhail Baryshnikov by ruling with a kid glove".

Deborah Bull reviews 'I Maya Plisetskaya' for the Literary Review. "Maya Plisetskaya's career stretched over sixty years - and counting. Her latest performance was in 1996, at the age of 71, and I certainly wouldn't put money on her hanging up her pointe shoes for good. Her account of that career can be read as a colourful - if highly personal - account of one of the most extraordinary periods in recent history: not only the view from the other side of the curtain, but the view from the other side of the iron curtain, too".

Deborah Bull has also been interviewed by Clive James for his new internet TV channel, 'Welcome Stranger'. The format is Windows Mediaplayer, and the interview is twenty seven minutes long. Scroll down the webpage for the videolink.

   OK magazine for 3/1 has extremely beautiful and very exotic photos of the RB female principals dancing Sugarplum Fairy - Darcey Bussell, Alina Cojocaru, Tamara Rojo, Leanne Benjamin, Miyako Yoshida and Zenaida Yanowsky. Short and sweet interview with Darcey included. Definitely worth flicking through if not buying.

   From the Observer:

The Festival Hall's Cold War Snow Maiden is well past its sell-by date, but The Nutcracker never loses its sweetness

Jann Parry

'Now that The Snow Maiden has returned to the theatre for which it was conceived, it is evident why Festival Ballet let it lapse. Like its heroine, the ballet is insubstantial, without a heart.'

Http://www.observer.co.uk/review/story/0,6903,628126,00.html


From the Sunday Times , but you'll need to register:

Fast forward: 2002: Dance DAVID DOUGILL
'At Covent Garden, there will be no shortage of the big classics, with the return of Giselle, La Bayadère, and Romeo and Juliet, but the Royal Ballet's new director, the Australian Ross Stretton, is boosting the international flavour of the repertory with a series of mixed programmes under themed titles — Memories, Enduring Images, and Cross Cultures. A radiant classical piece, Beyond Bach, will introduce the Australian choreographer Stephen Baynes, and another important acquisition is The Leaves Are Fading, one of Antony Tudor's last works created in America (January). '

Http://www.sunday-times.co.uk/article/0,,9013-2001603859,00.html


The Sunday Telegraph has an excellent piece by Louise Levene on the Paris Opera Ballet's current mixed bill (Bayadere, Scheherazade, Petrushka, L'Apres Midi d'une faune), but as usual it's not on-line. Damn you, Sunday Telegraph.......

From Scotland on Sunday:
Swan Lake and The Nutcracker

Christopher Bowen
'With (Swan Lake's) iconic heroine (surely everyone's image of the classical ballerina) and instantly recognisable score, Swan Lake is the most popular of all of the great 19th-century classics. Yet it has also been edited, rearranged and reinterpreted more than any other ballet. Little remains of Reisinger's original Moscow production of 1877 except, of course, Tchaikovsky's score which emerged with major changes in the musical sequence for the 1895 St Petersburg version by Ivanov and Petipa.'

Http://www.scotlandonsunday.com/atplay.cfm?id=11262002

From the Sunday Herald:

The Birds and Madame B take flight
'With the travails of Scottish Ballet still unresolved, our classical dancers begin the year on an unsteady footing. That said, there is a busy programme already practising its plis in the wings. It opens next week, with the St Petersburg Ballet's traditional production of Swan Lake (Edinburgh Festival Theatre, January 8-12). The equally romantic tragedy Madame Butterfly, set to Puccini's opera score, flutters to the same venue from Northern Ballet Theatre's Leeds base (February 26-March 2) heralding the fresh input of new director David Nixon.'

Http://www.sundayherald.com/21276


From the New York Times, Jack Anderson on Australian Dance Theatre's programme at the Joyce Theatre:

Taking Liberties With Ballet's Archetypes

'Indeed, it can be argued that the characters in those ballets (Swan Lake, Giselle, Coppelia) have attained the status of mythical, or archetypal, figures choreographers can treat as they choose, just as playwrights have long been free to take personages from classic Greek tragedies and manipulate them as they see fit. Thus, characters corresponding to Orestes and Electra appear in Eugene O'Neill's "Mourning Becomes Electra," but the setting is 19th- century America, not ancient Greece.

   Getting back to that non-online Sunday Telegraph piece, I have now read through it and can't resist passing on the following quote from Louise Levene's less-than-enthusiastic comments on Bianca Li's 'Scheherazade':

'We conclude with Letestu bouncing astride a supine Martinez at the centre of a huge doughnut of scatter cusions (I blame Bakst), while the chorus enjoy a good synchronised squirm on the perimeter. When will they learn: you can't have sex with tights on'.

The Mail on Sunday has a big interview with Deborah Bull with some beautiful photos. "Dancing Queen - In her first interview since leaving the Royal Ballet, Deborah Bull reveals the truth about her retirement and what it was like playing second fiddle to Darcey Bussell."

   She says she is still upset about the headlines that announced her departure. (The newspapers said she wants to retire as she developed stage fright.) She says she stopped as she was 38. She thought she would get jealous and never be able to watch anyone else dance, but it was not true. She saw Alina Cojocaru in Don Q and it made her heart lift. Hope this interview will appear in her own website in the next few days.
Thanks to this inteview, I bought the paper today and just finished going through the main part and to my surprise I found a review of "Royal Ballet at Work" by somebody called Roderick Gilchrist in the Review page ! This review is quite long and there is a nice photo of Tamara Rojo. I didn't know the Mail on Sunday covers dance reviews. Who is Gilchrist ? Does anyone know him ? No other critic did review the RB dancers in class before. What is going on in Mail on Sunday ? Have they suddenly discovered the pleasure of dance ? There was also an article about Anastasia Volochkova and Anthony Kerman.
