Image <P>The Bahia Ballet in a scene from Paradox Photograph: BEL GOUVEA<P><BR>The Bahia Ballet from Bahia Province in Brazil come to London's Peacock Theatre in mid-September. Tim Teeman visits the company on their home ground and tells us that it, '...mixes classical skills with modern daring and the region's unique spiritual and cultural heritage.' <P>Later he reports that, 'The dancers writhe, wriggle, leap and lunge, their bodies clad only in the briefest of underwear: make no mistake, the pieces are as sexy as they are thoughtful.' <P>Hmm... where's that phone number for the Peacock?<P> <A HREF="http://www.the-times.co.uk/news/pages/tim/00/09/02/timmetmdo02001.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.the-times.co.uk/news/pages/tim/00/09/02/timmetmdo02001.html</A> <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited September 02, 2000).]

Mr Crisp makes it clear that he did not enjoy Bahai Ballet: <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>It offers addled modern dance, programme notes which relate in the most oblique fashion to what we see, and a general air of something that does not travel well. Indeed, should not travel at all. <P>There are dancers who burst with energy, and what must be good intentions. There is full and partial nudity, throwing of shoes, dubious piety and yards of coloured cheesecloth, a certain amount of simulated copulation, some perfectly dreadful clothes, two scores that invite instant oblivion and the Philip Glass violin concerto, and more incomprehensible messages than anyone could possible want during the course of one evening. There is also a lot of angst - neurosis must be a Brazilian indoor sport - and not a moment when I felt I wanted to be sitting in the Peacock's dismal interior.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P> <BR><A HREF="http://search.ft.com/search/multi/globalarchive.jsp?docId=000921000928&query=Clement+Crisp&resultsShown=20&resultsToRequest=100" TARGET=_blank>now read on</A><BR>

Donald Hutera gets more out of Bahia Ballet than his colleagues or me for that matter. <P> <A HREF="http://www.the-times.co.uk/news/pages/tim/00/09/25/timartdan01002.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.the-times.co.uk/news/pages/tim/00/09/25/timartdan01002.html</A> <P>
