solo 'Portait' at Dutch National Ballet Gala

The solo that I created for dancer Michaela DePrince will be featured at the National Opera and Ballet during Dutch National Ballet's opening season gala. The program includes pieces by Hans van Manen, Van Dantzig, John Neumeier as well as pas de deuxs from classics such as Flames de Paris and Swan Lake.

Two works that stayed with me long after the performance were Portrait and Nude. Young Creative Associate, Peter Leung, wrote Portrait for Michaela DePrince, who is back on stage after an injury. Portrait is something of a rite of passage for each of these artists as they move into a new space. DePrince has developed from the virtuosic ingénue to take her place as a fully fledged artist while Leung’s complex work of signs and suggestions takes him to a new level. DePrince, simple costumed in a black dress, is positioned between two light stands as in a photographer’s studio and indeed her extraordinary life of courage in adversity has meant that much of her professional career has been played out in the spotlight. The choreography allows her, in brief moments to display her formidable technique but this intense solo is about a strong soul finding her own path.
