Deborah Jowett reviews a performance in the Construction Company studio. 'The evening is less about dancing to music than about dancing through music.' Jowett also discusses other current work in New York.

Great photo.

[Azlan notes: This was originally a post by Stuart in another thread]<P>A lengthy interview and review of 'Arias' by Christopher Caines:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>....he began to study modern dance with Radcliffe's Claire Mallardi, a former student of Hanya Holm, and his future was sealed. Immediately upon graduation, Caines gave up an academic career for dancing, made a beeline for New York, and never looked back. Today, he is a 37-year-old choreographer at work in the city--one youthful dancemaker among many, scrambling to pay his dancers for the two or three concerts that he produces each year. He has an extensive background of study in classical ballet and modern dance, but most of what he made in the 1990s would be categorized as performance art, including "True Love," a tender and exquisite fantasia on Atlantic Canada and Britain, set during World War II.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR>Has anyone seen his work?<P><BR> <A HREF="http://www.thenewrepublic.com/100900/aloff100900.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.thenewrepublic.com/100900/aloff100900.html</A>

Being a purist, choreographer Christopher Caines insists upon performing to live music.

From Deborah Jowitt in the Village Voice:

Quote:
The Construction Company studio on East 18th Street is small, holding 60 in folding chairs. Dancers rush past the audience to enter, or pour through the door from the gallery up front. All the more bold, then, that Pat Catterson used 28 dancers in her intriguing new Crowd Pleaser. <a href=http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0307/jowitt.php target=_blank>more</a> in the second item

Dutifully Attempting to Match Intense Music
by JACK ANDERSON for the New York Times

Mr. Caines made 10 dancers stretch, turn, rise and fall, sometimes joining hands in a ring, sometimes assuming crucifixion poses. Nothing looked inappropriate. But nothing remotely matched the eloquence of Tallis. This was a dance in which listening to the music was more compelling than watching the steps.

Too much of a good thing is absolutely exhausting
by EVA YAA ASANTEWAA for the Village Voice

The abundant program notes were supplemented by seven pages of lyric sheets. With Caines maybe it’s best to focus on one point of interest at a time.
