Robert Johnson says, "The ballet world’s latest celebrity showcase, Daniil Simkin’s "Intensio", sounds like a cardio-fitness workshop. Despite its promise to set hearts pounding, though, none of the new dances that Simkin, an American Ballet Theatre principal, has commissioned for this pick-up company has much of an impact.

The culprits, er, choreographers include Alexander Ekman, Jorma Elo and Annabelle López Ochoa, plus young, American dance maker Gregory Dolbashian. At the center of this program, which opened on Tuesday at the Joyce Theater, comes Ekman’s short film Simkin and the City paired with the same choreographer’s dance-theater piece Simkin and the Stage.... for more Log on to our site.

Nicole Deckle Collins on The Dance Enthusiast "The Hard Nut, Mark Morris’s affectionate, irreverent, ingeniously musical, madcap, and deftly imaginative retelling of The Nutcracker, returned to the Brooklyn Academy of Music this December after a five-year absence. Created in 1991 at the end of the Mark Morris Dance Group’s three-year tenure as the resident company at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels, The Hard Nut takes place on Christmas Eve in a suburban home in 1970s America. The first scene is chockablock with ‘70s nostalgia and references to American popular culture. Instead of a fireplace, Dr. Stahlbaum and his wife have a TV; instead of candles, their Christmas tree is festooned with mod white electric lights, which the maid switches on at just the moment when Tchaikovsky’s score heralds the lighting of the tree. Instead of life-sized Harlequin and Columbine dolls, Drosselmeier brings a life-sized Robot and a Barbie..."

"What I learned when I came to New York was that in an audition, after the first bar or two of music, people  want to know, 'What else? What do you have to bring that’s surprising and special, what’s going to move the room emotionally?' This requires the ability to be courageous and vulnerable which takes a bit of time of time to learn."  Tony Yazbeck, on The Dance Enthusiast

"In I UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING BETTER we confront momentous, life-altering tempests. Super Storm Sandy engulfs us by way of blustering weather broadcasts reported by the meteorologist, Neumann, his voice breaking up and changing pitch as he’s slammed by nature and forced into a dance with his microphone. While atmospheric conditions attack, a hero/king also played by Neumann, is dying. This character is inspired by the choreographer’s father, the experimental-theater actor and one of the original founders of Mabou Mines, Frederick Neumann. Tonight we accompany this important man through his own personal storm, his final journey from the earth." Christine Jowers..
