New Quanz ballet

On Friday September 4 I had the privilege of seeing a run-through of a new ballet by Peter Quanz set to Steve Reich's Double Sextet, created on dancers of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet for a commission by the Works & Process series at the Guggenheim Museum in New York (premiering Friday September 11 with 2 more performances on September 12). For an interesting archive of the creation of this piece, visit peterquanz.com.
The ballet is very high-energy, reflecting the driving rhythms of the music. Principal dancer Vanessa Lawson was a standout, with focus, commitment, and incredible strength and speed making clean work of the limit-pushing choreography.
