2008 Capital Fringe Festival
Carmel Morgan reports on the summer dance scene from Washington, DC

Liz Lerman Dance Exchange - 'Muscle and Mortar: Animating Architecture'
July 26, 2008, National Building Museum, Washington, DC

The Liz Lerman Dance Exchange’s site-specific work, “Muscle and Mortar: Animating Architecture” gave the 2008 Capital Fringe Festival a unique hit. It’s a tall order to choreograph a work that highlights the architecture of a huge, amazingly beautiful, historic building – in this case the National Building Museum in downtown D.C.

Kirov/Mariinsky 2008-09 Season
by contributors to the CriticalDance Forum

Are we talking about The Little Humpbacked Horse? I believe two versions premiered at MT, the 1895 version by Petipa and the 1945 version by Feodor Lupukhov in 1945. I'll take a "three day wild guess" that they'll perform the latter. The famous 1960 version from Radunsky-Shchedrin probably won't be used, since it was created for the Bolshoi troupe...

A very intense Olivier Wevers is ... one of three choreographers working on Seattle Dance Project’s new production called “Project Orpheus.” The other two local choreographers are Eva Stone and Wade Madsen. It’s part of ACT Theater’s Companion Program & will be shown in conjunction with ACT’s “Eurydice.”


Royal Danish Ballet's Morten Eggert
by Kate Snedeker
In ballet, male dancers tend to fall into distinct categories such as the danseur noble, or the demi-caractère.  This characterization can be a blessing or a curse.  However, there are a few dancers who manage to escape a label... One of these "wildcards" of the ballet world is Royal Danish Ballet soloist Morten Eggert.


Mariinsky Ballet - 'Prodigal Son', 'Symphony in C', 'The Rite of Spring'
by Catherine Pawlick - July 25, 2008, Mariinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg, Russia
That Nijinsky's choreography for “The Rite of Spring”, in combination with Nicholas Roerich's avant-garde set designs, reflect perfectly the complex dissonance and uneven measures of Stravinsky's accompanying score was once again visible as the ballet returned to the Mariinsky stage at the close of the 2007-2008 season..

National Ballet of Canada - 'Mad Hot Gala'
by Denise Sum -- June 17, 2008, Four Seasons Centre for the Arts, Toronto, Canada
Mad Hot II is the National Ballet of Canada’s third annual fundraiser event,combining a gala performance and a dinner. In previous years, the company organized events such as “Dine and Dance with the Dancers”. However, it was felt that no fundraiser would be complete without an actual performance, reminding patrons of the outstanding artists and choreography that must be cultivated and supported in our city.

Nicholas Andre Dance Theatre
by Cecly Placenti -- July 18, 2008, Dance Theatre Workshop, New York
Seeing an evening of Nick Seligson-Ross’ work feels like floating on a wave, being carried naturally along by the rise and fall of the current of his choreography. With movements both soft and jagged, Seligson-Ross knows how to phrase and contrast to create a profound sense of completion in his work. Audience and performers are on a journey, and we come to rest together with a sense of fulfillment and excitement.
