Dance Current Review of Elles
The power of Elles continues to resonate!
Kaja Pepper in The Dance Current recently published a review with some very wonderful comments on the piece. Here are a few snippets to whet your appetite:
“The opening to Elles is a perfect example of the edgy texture Bennathan creates by having each woman follow her own impulse.”
“Elles is filled with spiky-fingered, muscular port de bras and emphatic solos. Calam’s alternately flat-footed and tippy-toed stamping, like a toreador facing a bull, is a magnificent showcase of finely etched fury.”
“Bertrand Chenier’s piano score, which he played live, is a romantic Chopinesque cascade (sometimes effectively set under recorded sections of electronic or world music).”
