Dance in 2004

Pointe to the future

By Debra Craine
The Times

Ballet moves forward by looking to the past with two landmark anniversaries

Quote:
THE dance world loves an anniversary, and 2004 is a humdinger. One hundred years ago two men were born on opposite sides of the world; they would grow up to have a profound impact on ballet in the 20th century. If there is one theme that will run through dance in Britain this year, it will be the joint centenaries of George Balanchine and Frederick Ashton

Fifty things to see and do in the UK - 2004
From The Observer

We all know, well here at least, that there should be 40 odd dance events in the list with the remainder divided between the other art forms. Newspapers having a pecking order for the Arts: what critics get paid, wordage and so on. The "major" art forms like theatre and film get 6 entries in this list and poor old jazz, perenially the poor relation on the Arts pages, gets 1. Dance with 3 is only ahead of architecture, fashion and photography and...jazz. It's about what I'd expect:

TV 6
Pop 6
Theatre 6
Film 6
Books 5
Classical 4
Art 4
Dance 3
Architecture 2
Fashion 2
Photography 2
Exhibitions 1
Jazz 1

I'm missing two - can anyone find them?


20 Dance
Harlem globetrotters

When Dance Theatre of Harlem returned to London in 2001 after a 14-year gap, they were such a hit that a spring tour has been organised for them by the Dance Consortium, 18 large-scale UK theatres. Arthur Mitchell, their founder-director, has trademarked DTH's sparky style as 'classically American'.

21 Dance
Centenaries

2004 is the centennial anniversary year of two great choreographers, George Balanchine and Frederick Ashton. And it's 75 years since Serge Diaghilev died, so ballet companies have plenty of pretexts for commemorative programmes.

43 Dance
Wim Vandekeybus

Blush is bolder than its title suggests. Flemish choreographer and filmmaker Wim Vandekeybus deals in physical confrontations, raw emotions and disconcerting visual effects.

Nos 1 to 25

Nos 26 to 50

Plenty to sing about
Anthony Field for The Stage looks ahead to what the West End has to offer in the coming year, a diverse line-up that includes two very different heavyweight musicals and a major Broadway transfer

The media has been looking retrospectively at the past year's productions so it is timely to anticipate the new productions planned for 2004, which is already looking like the year of new musicals.
