Best of 2013: Best dance of 2013
Young experimentalists and rigorous classical ballet: The dance world is shaping up
Those quiet dances that you can't quite forget
It’s true, right? Melanie Maar’s Our Other; Gwen Welliver’s Beasts and Plots; Joanna Kotze’s It Happened It Had Happened It Is Happening It Will Happen; and Fanny de Chaillé’s The Library.
And on the bigger, even bombastic side
Pam Tanowitz’s The Spectators (the first 20 minutes were a miracle), pictured; Pascal Rambert’s A (micro) history of world economics, danced; and Matthew Neenan’s The Last Glass for Ballet X. FINAL GRADE: B+ Don’t get me wrong—there were terrible shows. But what rises to the surface matters.
