New York City Center, New York, NY. April 4, 2024. Over the course of four days in April, the cool kids came to town. Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT), the bastion of contemporary dance in Europe based in The Hague, treated sold-out NYC dance audiences to three works during its first tour to America since 2020. For many of us in the audience, NDT’s previous performance was the last we saw live in theaters before the Covid lockdown. The return of the company to the same theater (New York City Center) felt in some ways like finally turning the page on a dark chapter of live performance, although th ..read more

The Woodman Family and Community Arts Center, Providence, RI. March 17, 2024. One could explore the possibilities within dance art for a lifetime and only scratch the surface. Generations of artists have done just that (and continue to do so). Some dance companies are particularly skilled at venturing through those possibilities, thoughtfully and courageously. Ballet RI is one of them. The classical, neoclassical, modern and contemporary, and all of the qualities that those separate genres contain – they’ve done it all. The company’s most recent program, Off the Charts, was an Exhibit A of suc ..read more

Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn, NY. March 21, 2024. In Mark Morris’ world, The Look of Love is packaged in brightly colored, nostalgic, approachable wrapping. The work, his first since 2017, offers love in digestible bites, but sometimes it feels like you’re ordering off the kids menu. Performed to a suite of 14 Burt Bacharach songs, the 65-minute show creates a specific reality that celebrates love in all its various forms. Like all of Morris’ shows, live musicians accompany the dancers with stellar vocals from acclaimed Broadway and film star, Marcy Harriell. In fact, one could almost t ..read more

Citizens Bank Opera House, Boston, MA. March 16, 2024. The classic Disney canon is nostalgic for many of this reviewer’s generation. Maybe we re-experience it when we have our own children and watch with them, or when these stories resurface in the cultural zeitgeist. If you’re me, you return to them as a dance critic (certainly no complaints there).  Through any of those avenues, we can be flooded with sweet nostalgia. I felt that with taking in Boston Ballet’s Cinderella, even with the company’s typical way of infusing a dash of the modern into a classical mix. Whether classic or modern ..read more
