Can any of our friends in Australia tell us about a modern choreographer named Natalie Weir? I read an aricle about her in the NY Times; she premiered a piece with American Ballet Theater called "Jabula". It was quite a hit!! What can you tell us about her? She is totally a new name to me!!

trina, we have a few references to Natalie Weir on the site. Go to search on the board front page and search on her name. You should get 7 references, including this topic.<P>To start you off here are:<P>Here is a topic on ABT's 'Jabula'<BR> <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum4/HTML/000462.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum4/HTML/000462.html</A> <P><BR>And here is a topic on an Australian Ballet's production of 'Mirror, Mirror'.<P> <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum4/HTML/000248.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum4/HTML/000248.html</A> <BR><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited November 25, 2000).]

The New York Times referred to her,I believe,as a "modern" choreographer comfortable in ballet, or some such thing. Maybe I need to go back and read the review.

I saw Natalie Weir's Sydney premiere of "Mirror Mirror" recently and was not inspired. I had seen a few of her works before and was deeply impressed by them. Mirror Mirror, based on Snow White, was her first attempt at a full length work so I think, given time, she'll improve. I do think her forte lies in abstract ballets though.<P>------------------<BR>[This message has been edited by Jennifer]<BR>
