Bytom Dance Festival

The Belgians are Coming: Compagnie Michele Noiret - 'White Room', Compagnie Thor - 'D'Orient'
by Aneta Flowacka, July 7 &11, 2006

“White room” was for the most part an interesting and disturbing performance, taking the audience to other conditions of feeling, beyond rationality, domestication and closeness. White curtains on three sides closed the space; this white stage was empty, except for a square table and black stool.

Reports from the Dusseldorf Internationale Tanzmesse
by Annie Wells

Yesterday saw the official opening of the 6th International Tanzmesse which in a well-established manner now takes place in the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen every two years. Addresses...preceded opening performances from what the state officially considers to be two of the largest gems in a much be-jewelled dance crown - the Ballett der Deutschen Oper am Rhein and the Folkswang Tanzstudio.

Finis Jhung: Finis Fine-Tunes Ballet
by Dean Speer and Francis Timlin
June 2006 - Jackson, Mississippi

I believe that everyone has potential, that there is an answer to every problem, and that the teacher’s job is to give people the key to change themselves... I encourage students to become more confident by better understanding how their bodies work and how bodies move in space.  I also encourage students to look at steps, not in isolation, but rather as one continuous motion.

'Howling Near Heaven' by Marcia B. Siegel
reviewed by Leland Windreich

Siegel’s book is less a biography than a chronicle of a career. Siegel deals with the warts in the context of Tharp’s exposition of the creative processes but avoids lingering on the potentially lurid. In offering a detailed account of Tharp’s dances and the many transitions in her artistic development, Siegel leaves no stone unturned.


Bolshoi Ballet - 'The Pharaoh's Daughter'
by Cassandra -- August 2, 2006 matinee, evening, Royal Opera House, London
Osipova is gorgeous, a prima in the making if I’m not mistaken. Her technique is already near- impeccable and that miraculous jump of hers is allied to the cleanest of footwork. She has good line, pleasing musicality, natural épaulement and above all no mannerisms whatsoever.

Batsheva - 'Telophaza'
by Juliet Neidish and Mark Franko -- July 20, 2006, New York State Theatre, Lincoln Center, NYC
The Batsheva dancers are without a doubt powerful, earthy, and exuberant movers committed to the mastery of Gaga, a movement technique designed by Naharin. The shared technique plus the fact that the dancers are for the most part in their mid- 20’s gives the company a look of homogeneity.  The company offered the U.S. premiere of “Telophaza” (2005) at the Lincoln Center Festival.

Pilobolus - 'Prism', 'Gnomen', 'Sweet Purgatory'
by Cecly Placenti -- July 24, 2006, Joyce Theatre, New York
Pilobolus, the art organism, is a highly unusual, non-traditional dance company whose unique signature style grows out of a deeply committed collaborative effort. At seven dancers thick, its fresh approach to weight-sharing and partnering give it the power to make dances that look like moving architecture.
