"In this age of YouTube, the very act of presenting live bodies in a performance setting is a radical act. While such a path is far from easy, the seven choreographers seen in this film work tirelessly to both question and embrace their chosen form, producing work that celebrates the strange, startling and poetic beauty of dance and performance."--Http://www.michaelblackwoodproductions.com/md_nydance.php
The Bolshoi Ballet in Christopher Wheeldon's Misericordes ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Created especially for Russia's Bolshoi Ballet, perhaps the most esteemed and time-honored dance company in the world, the piece known at its premiere as Misericordes is a richly imagined reinterpretation of Hamlet. This recording of its opening night performance in Moscow captures both the boundary-pushing vision of choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and the breathtaking artistry of Svetlana Lunkina, Dmitri Gudanov, and other Bolshoi dancers. The work is choreographed to Arvo Pärt's Symphony No. 3, which, together with Paul Tazewell's graceful costumes, lends the production an aura of sacred pageantry and, on a more subtle level, a haunting sense of danger. Part of the series Strictly Bolshoi"--Container
