21ST CENTURY CHOREOGRAPHERS I

New Woodkid/JR

Barber Violin Concerto (Barber/Martins)

This Bitter Earth (Washington, Richter/Wheeldon)

Herman Schmerman Pas de Deux (Willems/Forsythe)

Namouna, A Grand Divertissement (Lalo/Ratmansky)

One of Martins’ most popular works, Barber Violin Concerto contrasts a classical couple with a bare-footed modern couple as they interchange partners. Wheeldon’s brief but heartfelt pas de deux explores Dinah Washington’s soulful rendition of “This Bitter Earth” as remixed by British composer Max Richter. Forsythe marries his signature angular choreography with pedestrian mannerisms in a pas de deux set to an electronic score. Using classical conventions in a new way, Ratmansky’s epic Namouna, A Grand Divertissement distills a 19th-century story into a highly-stylized series of athletic and humorous dances full of dramatic texture.
