Toppling Taboos by Taking On Sacred Cows

Emerging Dance Critics Programme

All in Sequence

By David Rudin

Wayne McGregor’s Genus and Jerome Robbins’ The Concert are both elaborate choreographies that hinge on the smallest of movements – the twitch of a finger, the crook of an elbow or the flick of a wrist.

Delving into Familial Pasts

Jacinto by Carmen Romero By Kathleen Smith Jacinto Carmen Romero, produced by Compañia Carmen Romero

Flamenco artist Carmen Romero captures the memory and mystery surrounding her father’s sudden death in Jacinto. Dripping with sadness while exploring movement that is capable of vast expression and infinite consolation, Jacinto situates Romero as part of an experimental new wave that is sweeping flamenco internationally.
