I found that article to be extremely interesting. I loved the allegory to an art gallery.<P>At the mention of reworking some of the classics to present others perspectives, it reminded me that many years ago Dance Theater of Harlem reworked Giselle and placed it in the southern part of the United States - in the 1800's I believe it was. I am trying to remember the name - oh wait - I think it was "A Creole Giselle" - or that's close anyway. It was to represent the black experience in terms of Giselle. <P> I once saw it presented on TV and wanted to tape it, but it was so poorly photographed - the camera work was so bad - that is was literally impossible. I really wanted to see that.
