'Australian Ballet - The future of dance is in safe hands.' By NEIL JILLETT. <P>A review of the state of AB, looking at numbers and procedures rather than dance quality. Except that some of the new recruits from the AB School look very good. I have to say that I found this rather disturbing:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>After Stretton had been the AB's boss for only a few months, complaints that he was brusque and aloof caused the board, acting with unusual firmness (an insider told me at the time), to advise him to show dancers more consideration. The situation apparently improved, but in recent months there have again been rumors of unhappiness among the dancers, although it has not shown in stage performances.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><A HREF="http://www.theage.com.au/entertainment/2000/12/17/FFX41D3QQGC.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Neil Jillett's article</B></A><BR>

THE Australian Ballet has cancelled its tour to London this year for financial reasons. What a shame. <P> <A HREF="http://www.heraldsun.com.au/common/story_page/0,4511,1696110%255E2902,00.ht" TARGET=_blank>http://www.heraldsun.com.au/common/story_page/0,4511,1696110%255E2902,00.ht</A> <BR>ml<BR>

Valerie Lawson opines on the legacy of Ross Stretton:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Man in the middle, somewhat elevated</B><P>Valerie Lawson, Sydney Morning Herald<P>Creativity, energy and passion (the CEP factor) was the AB's slogan in the Stretton years and, like many slogans, it looks and sounds slick but is hard to define and tricky to prove correct. I am not sure what "creativity" really meant. All theatrical enterprise is creative. Perhaps "creative" meant innovative, and in that sense Stretton did deliver with a fresh repertoire of one-act works, with emphasis on contemporary European choreographers.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.smh.com.au/news/0106/15/features/features8.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>
