In varied program, troupe gets its kicks
The annual summer-long festival of dance that Jacob’s Pillow delivers is bound to invite comparison to the Olympic Games. All of those international companies, all of those fabulous dancer/athletes. So be it: This week it’s the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, a terrific troupe of 11 dancers who are doing us proud in an excellent program of four dances that show off the company’s versatility.

Different styles, but duo provides a journey of struggle
If there’s a thread that links the work of choreographers Kate Weare and Maureen Fleming, it’s a tie that also binds our species: the ability to struggle, bounce back, and begin the struggle anew.
.... This week at Jacob’s Pillow’s Doris Duke Studio Theatre, Weare appears with her eponymous company - presenting a world premiere co-commissioned by the Pillow - and Fleming performs solo in three excerpts from two of her longer works.

Funny bones - Stockholm 59° North at the Pillow

The company, which is made up of principals and soloists from the Royal Swedish Ballet, bookended its bill with two serious pieces, Cristina Caprioli’s Cicada (in its world premiere) and Nacho Duato’s Castrati, but it was the darkly comic offerings of Mats Ek in the middle — a pas de deux from Apartment and Pas de Danse — and the personable interpretations that gave the evening its distinction.

Lukewarm - Trey McIntyre at the Pillow
....
After a White Oak residency in Florida last month, McIntyre brought his Project back to the Pillow for a Northeast debut that offered two world premieres, Surrender and Leatherwing Bat, alongside his 2003 piece The Reassuring Effects (Of Form and Poetry). I wish I could say I found the form and the poetry of this new company reassuring.

From Janine Parker in the Boston Globe:

Quote:
New company soars in debut at Jacob’s Pillow
....
Wednesday’s opening performance [of Trey Mcintyre Project] felt like finding a shiny new penny - lucky and hopeful. The dancers are appealing, eager performers: Moods and expressions look authentic, not pasted on; the dancers’ training is candidly, easily displayed. There’s no posturing - there’s no time, given McIntyre’s penchant for speed.

...Sometimes his works can be too much surface and not enough substance, but there’s enough bite and edge to keep the program’s three dances from simply evaporating without leaving an afterimage.

Dainty cabaret - Keigwin + Company bring the elements to Jacob’s Pillow
Larry Keigwin’s genial take on the perennially popular theme of the four elements (water, fire, earth, air) didn’t add anything profound to the cosmic intelligence. Performed by his company last week in Jacob’s Pillow’s Doris Duke Studio Theatre, Elements consisted of 16 individually titled sketches, each about four and a half minutes long, with no more substance than the foam that inspired them.
