Live music, lavish costumes to enhance dance performance
BY SARAH D'ESTI MILLER for The Press & Sun-Bulletin (Binghamton)


The Georgian State Dance Company is bringing something to Binghamton University's Anderson Center on Wednesday that isn't often seen with touring productions -- its own orchestra.

"It's a company of 70 with 12 musicians and the rest dancers," said company manager Mayra Glur.

"There are more than 2,500 costumes, and they are spectacular. Each of the dancers tells a different story of Georgian folk life through dance."

Jennifer Dunning in The New York Times (26 Nov. 2002):

Quote:
The 57-year-old company puts on a very good show that reaches its thrilling peak with the famed acrobatics of the men, who run, jump and turn on their toes and knees. Many of the pieces, choreographed by the company director, Tengiz Sukhishvili, and Ilia Sukhishvili Jr., his son, are rooted in very old traditional dances and music. But one of the things that set the Georgians apart is the abstraction of the dancing. No attempts are made to suggest the farmlands, village squares and homely rituals of other folk programs.

Georgian Legend
By Chen Jie for China Daily

Every ballet lover knows George Balanchine, but not many are aware that the great choreographer and dancer was Georgian. Fewer still know that Georgians are the only male dancers in the world able to dance on their tiptoes while wearing supple leather ballet shoes.

All of this will become clear with the staging of the spectacular "Georgian Legend" show, which demonstrates the great influence Georgian folk dances had on Balanchine.
