on the company. The one-week season opened with an exquisite presentation of Jiri Kylian’s Indigo Rose, framed with a daring show of lights (by Michael Simon), decor (by Kylian) and costumes (by Joke Visser). The cast: Billy Bell, Jon Bond, Vania Doutel Vaz, Jason Kittleberger , Joseph Kudra, Navarra Novy-Williams, Joaquim de Santana, Jin Young Won and Ebony Williams. Crystal Pite’s
demanding Ten Duets On A Theme Of Rescue followed, and was danced superbly by Jon Bond, Nickemil Concepcion, Guillaume Queau, Ida Saki and Williams. Each dancer, in different pairings, was so very skillful in their shape-shifting lifts and balances.
Kudos to Williams for such captivating and technically fabulous
dancing! Andonis Foniadakis’ fast-paced Horizons closed the
evening’s program. The cast: Bond, Kudra, Novy-William, Queau, Matthew Rich, Ida Saki, de Santana, Acacia Schachte, Rachelle Scott and Young Won.
