“No Fixed Points”

Francisco Gella, Dallas Blagg, Kristopher Wojtera, Nicolas Lincoln

Not every moment was a winner (these are workshop pieces after all) but the dancers looked fabulous especially the women in Lustig’s examination of the Glass phenomenon and Bach never seemed so right for ballet as in Moulton’s “Rope in the Water.” Patterson’s contribution I’m afraid to say never really came together. But, the soloist female in a purple top and black shorts in the first and the fourth movements of the Moulton piece carried the burden of representing Bach the Artist (capitalized) particularly well.

CD friends, if you were there, why not post in your impressions...
