The Winter, 2001 issue of <I>DanceView</I> is out and has Mary Cargill's review of Dance as Ever's October concert in Manhattan. She has this to say:<P>"It was an extraordinarily moving piece, especially the elegaic last song. . .where the effective lighting (by Jeffrey E. Salzberg) seemed both to box the dancer in and to elevate him above all human suffering."<P><BR>There are also mentions of extraneous elements such as choreography and dancing. . . .<P><BR><P>------------------<BR>Jeffrey E. Salzberg, Lighting Designer<BR>This Day in Arts History: <A HREF="http://www.suncoast.quik.com/salzberg/arthist.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.suncoast.quik.com/salzberg/arthist.htm</A><BR>Online portfolio: <A HREF="http://www.suncoast.quik.com/salzberg" TARGET=_blank>http://www.suncoast.quik.com/salzberg</A> <P><BR>

Than kew, than kew. . . .<P>What's remarkable about that review is that she pegged exactly what we were trying to do. It was, to me, the perfect collaboration between choreographer and designer; Leigh specifically asked for the confining box (actually, what he wanted -- and got -- was a gradual constriction of the available dancing space with each verse, ending in a coffin-like box) and I added that which reinforced the choreography that elevated the dancer "above all human suffering."<P>Of course, it helps a lot if you have a Peter Boal to dance it.<P>Here's the text of the last poem:<P>Is my team ploughing,<BR>That I was used to drive<BR>And hear the harness jingle<BR>When I was man alive?' <P>Ay, the horses trample,<BR>The harness jingles now;<BR>No change though you lie under<BR>The land you used to plough. <P>'Is football playing<BR>Along the river shore,<BR>With lads to chase the leather,<BR>Now I stand up no more?' <P>Ay, the ball is flying,<BR>The lads play heart and soul;<BR>The goal stands up, the keeper<BR>Stands up to keep the goal. <P>'Is my girl happy,<BR>That I thought hard to leave,<BR>And has she tired of weeping<BR>As she lies down at eve?' <P>Ay, she lies down lightly,<BR>She lies not down to weep:<BR>Your girl is well contented.<BR>Be still, my lad, and sleep. <P>'Is my friend hearty,<BR>Now I am thin and pine,<BR>And has he found to sleep in<BR>A better bed than mine?' <P>Yes, lad, I lie easy,<BR>I lie as lads would choose;<BR>I cheer a dead man's sweetheart,<BR>Never ask me whose.<P>------------------<BR>Jeffrey E.

Oh yeah, Grumpy, I'm sure I've worked with him. Stocky guy with a beard and a beer belly? He's got a million keys on a ring on his leather belt? Image

I know I've worked with Dopey on numerous occasions. That's great, Salzberg. If we just had a nickel for every compliment.....
