<B>Pastor’s skilled dancers get Bach to the music</B> <BR>BACH DIVISIONS performed by The Israel Ballet reviewed BY ORA BRAFMAN in The Jerusalem Post <P><BR>Gdansk born choreographer Krzysztof Pastor, chose 12 dancers for his third work for the Israel Ballet, Bach Divisions, set to Bach's piano concerto BWV 1054 and Chaconne for violin, transcribed for piano.<P>Pastor obviously delights in the music and reveres it, and the dance keeps its spirit to the letter, many times to the point where musical phrase translates meticulously into steps. A trill on the piano will be echoed by a tremble of the feet.<P>Though not too innovative, it was lovely, well- organized dance with fast changes of duets, trios and group formations.<P><A HREF="http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/article.html?id=011125002747&query=ballet" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><P>Stuart adds: Pastor contributed one piece in the Dutch National Ballet visit to London thi year, but it was on an evening that I missed. One of the dancers told me that his work is winning many admirers.

A look back over 35 years of The Israel Ballet:<P><B>Still dancing after all these years</B><BR>By Amanda Borschel in The Jerusalem Post<P><BR>Ballet is like drugs: once you start, it's very difficult to stop, according to Israel Ballet founder, Berta Yampolsky. <P>Yampolsky feels that being able to bring a little illusion to people's lives is the reason why the company has achieved so much in a country that has little understanding for ballet. <P>"A little satisfaction covers all the misery and difficulties," she says. <P>The Israel Ballet is celebrating its 35th birthday this year, a feat many supporters consider as miraculous. Founded in 1967 by husband and wife team, Yampolsky (now the company's choreographer) and Hillel Markman (the artistic director and general manager), the ballet has been working towards fulfilling its goal of developing and nourishing the appreciation of classical ballet in Israel. <P><A HREF="http://www.jpost.com/Editions/2002/04/11/Culture/CultureNews.46741.html" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A>
