Ahead of Hampson's piece to be performed by ENB at The Coliseum on Monday:<P><B>Arts: Rising star's giant steps Christopher Hampson was a successful dancer when he first dabbled in choreography. Now he's addicted, he tells Nadine Meisner <BR>The Independent - United Kingdom; Jan 11, 2002</B><P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>These days, as ballet companies anxiously rummage through their address books for choreographers, the canny would-be creators are those who opt for the idiom of classicism rather than over-subscribed contemporary dance. If they have talent to boot, then they will be bombarded with grovelling propositions; they will make themselves a tidy living; they may even grow rich.<P>Christopher Hampson isn't there yet, but all his one-act pieces for English National Ballet have shown a singular, confident accomplishment. With his fourth, Double Concerto, premiered in his home town of Manchester in November, he scored rave reviews. "I was really pleased that people had seen in it so much that I'd put in: the humour, the sarcasm, the tenderness and subtlety, which are all in Poulenc's score."<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/article.html?id=020111000654&query=dance" TARGET=_blank><B>more...</B></A><P>
