There seems to have been more movement than usual among top dancers in many of the city's dance companies. One of the lucky recipients of this instability, as seen in two programs at the Baryshnikov Arts Center from November 9-20, is the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company.

Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet is having a bit of a moment these days, coming off of some big mainstream appearances. They were featured in the recent film "The Adjustment Bureau," as well as making a guest appearance on "So You Think You Can Dance."

Around NYC this week: the kick-off of the African Diaspora International Film Festival, a free afternoon concert of Beethoven's finest, and more.

A year ago, in one of the most memorable performances I’d seen the company give, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company performed in Battery Park City, just after the choreographer’s passing. The weather—the epitome of summer—was so perfect, it seemed to mock the sadness that hung over the vast audience, emotions still raw from Merce’s absence. [...]

France’s Lyon Opera Ballet returned to the Joyce after 15 years with a wonderful program of works by Merce Cunningham, William Forsythe, and Maguy Marin, which runs through Mar 14. Even though none of these works were New York premieres, it was enormously gratifying to see them all together. Beach Birds (Cunningham) and Duo (Forsythe) [...]

So there’s something refreshing, if blunt, about the frank populist appeal of Kings of the Dance which took place at City Center last week. Produced by Ardani [...]

The Guggenheim Works & Process Emotion & Motion program on Feb 14 & 15 featured two top-ranking dancers (étoiles) from the Paris Opera Ballet—Clairemarie Osta and Mathieu Ganio—performing three ballet excerpts, plus the speaker Dr. Helen Fisher. Works & Process events usually trace a theme elucidated in dance performance excerpts, or preview an upcoming performance, [...]

East Village Opera Company, the opera-rock hybrid company, first attracted buzz in 2004 with its live performances at Joe’s Pub. Two members of the company, co-founder Tyley Ross and AnnMarie Milazzo are currently singing miked, rock-infused versions of arias like Lakme‘s Flower Duet, Verdi’s “La donne e mobile,” and Puccini’s “O mio babbino caro” as [...]
