on that 'rescue' theme, i haven't seen it, but i believe the new york times take on kaiser's resignation was that 'now that he's rescued covent garden, he's coming home'!<P>anyway, back to your Q: <P>GIDEON OBARZANEK's CHUNKY MOVE IS A MUST-SEE!!!!!<P>and YES: I **AM** SHOUTING!!!!<P>whether you like it or not, will not be the point - as with forsythe or mark morris, gideon's is a talent you HAVE to know about, if you want to claim any familiarity with ballet today.<P>his first overseas commission was for netherlands dance theatre! - that was a few years ago now, but it's indicative that kylian himself recognised this young man's gift immediately. <P>to give you an idea of what to expect, when NDT1 were in perth last month, paul lightfoot's work seemed to me to be not unlike gideon's -although one never knows what to expect from him- both exhibit an in-your-face sort of attitude and a very quirky down-to-earth sense of humour - which can be confronting...and/or crowd-pleasing, especially for the young, and young at heart!<P>circus oz has always had a great reputation, so i can believe michael's endorsement, but i've never had the chance to see them. <P>if you have to choose one or the other: PLEASE see gideon! (sorry, michael!
