Pacific Northwest Ballet – A Million Kisses to my Skin, The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude, Emergence – New York

★★★✰✰ Overall, the impression was of a company in top form, at ease in a variety of styles. The dancers have an easy-going, open demeanor that makes even the knottiest works look more appealing.

Royal Ballet – Chroma, The Human Seasons, The Rite of Spring – London

The Royal Ballet’s autumn season triple bill offered very different ways of presenting bodies in space: anatomical studies in an architectural limbo (Chroma); flying figures in constant flux (The Human Seasons); a tribal community following ritual patterns (The Rite of Spring).
