Acts of Defiance

One would think that a dance inspired by the events of the January 6 insurrection—yes, a dance!—would not be the ideal stuff of theater, but the eight members of Laurie Sefton Creates (formerly Clairobscur Dance Company), succeeded in giving life to Sefton’s premiere “Herd. Person?”, while the dance, itself, was occasionally problematic.

A Danced Legacy
REVIEWS | Cecilia Whalen

A Danced Legacy

A man stands on a dark box facing sideways. He gently shifts his weight from heels to toes, rocking forward and backward. His gaze remains front, but his body never lands anywhere. He is in constant motion: neither here nor there, caught somewhere in between.

Swans in Seattle

One way to get to know the history of a company is through the “liner notes” of its “Swan Lake” production, and for those of us continuing to build an admiring familiarity with Pacific Northwest Ballet via its digital season offerings, Kent Stowell and Francia Russell’s “Swan Lake” provides an interesting glimpse into PNB prior to Peter Boal’s leadership.

Old (Creative) Habits

At 82, Twyla Tharp shows no signs of slowing down. She brought two world premieres and an all-star revival to the Joyce this week. The newest dances made it clear that although she’s still a dynamo, aging is very much on her mind. She is exploring wistful terrain these days, but she is doing it with her characteristic humor and high step count.

INTERVIEWS | Sophie Bress

For the Dance Moms

Dance has always been a part of Tammy Greenwood’s life. Growing up, she studied ballet, tap, jazz, and acrobatics, and when her daughter took up the art form, she became involved through the unwavering—and sometimes self-sacrificing—support that is often asked of a dance mom.

Timeless Expression

Timeless Expression

In these fast-paced times, where we are bombarded with spectacles that compete to be flashier, more action-packed, and more hi-tech than the next, it was a joy to experience an evening of charm and timeless simplicity.

Mere Mortals

The popular sentiment is clear: Matrix atmosphere meets ballet is a hit. “Mere Mortals,” Tamara Rojo’s first production as new artistic director at San Francisco Ballet, must be counted a success.

For the Soul
REVIEWS | Marina Harss

For the Soul

The name of Leonardo Sandoval and Gregory Richardson’s group, Music from the Sole, is an obvious allusion to the fact that the motor behind their performances is rhythm, and that this rhythm is often produced by the soles of the feet, in the form of tap.
