The New York premiere of German Cornejo’s “Tango Fire” easily takes the cake tonight. Fabulous aerials. Incredible foorwork. Live music. And fabulous aerials. Did I mention fabulous aerials? I was as awed by the ladies flying through the air while executing intricate footwork as I was scared for them. On numerous occasions, as they were lifted and/or spun around, there was no room for error, between the ladies and the floor, the chairs, or other dancers flying through the air at the same time. Of course, they also mark the most stunning moments of the evening.
Pennsylvania Ballet presented “Rush” choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon and a New York premiere, featuring a happier and more light-hearted theme (compared to the ballet from the opening nights).
Cie Art Move Concept had a few crazy sick moves in their performance tonight. Dancers spinning on their head… backflipping on their head… flying through the air, landing on their back, and then rebounding (while still on their back) into another leap. Wow!
