La La La Human Steps is one of the more thrilling dance companies today. I saw them perform last month and their sexy urban chic style was thrilling.

Their piece entitled New Work, one of their more conservative dances, explores power in relationships. It comment on the male gaze, as well as gender relations. The dancers’ movement often seemed mechanized, with the men frequently manipulating their female partners’ motions. It’s a beauty!

PINA is a feature-length dance film in 3D with the ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, featuring the unique and inspiring art of the great German choreographer, who died in the summer of 2009.

PINA is a film for Pina Bausch by Wim Wenders.
I hope you like it.:)

    PINA is one of the more extraordinary films I've ever seen. A monumentous tribute to Pina Bausch. Pina passed away during the preparation of this documentary. But Wim Wenders end up carrying on with the production. If you want to see some of PIna's best known peices, this Wim Wenders film is definately worth seeing! +1

Los Angeles Dance Festival to debut in a busy April:

With the goal of highlighting local dance, Diavolo Dance Theater and Brockus Project are co-producing a new Los Angeles Dance Festival, April 14 and 15, at the Brewery Arts Complex. So far, 16 contemporary dance companies have signed up to participate, including Barak Marshall’s dance company, Oni Dance, Kybele Dance Theater and Lula Washington Dance Theatre.

The festival is geared not only for audiences but also for local dancers — especially college students — looking to become better acquainted with the area’s professional companies.

Happy to see the dance scene in LA expand! Here’s a piece by LA’s Diavolo Dance Theater. I like them a lot.

The 15th Alabama Dance Festival, which started Friday and continues through Jan. 30, reveals examples of a sweeping move toward globalization in modern dance:

A Korean choreographer sets a piece about Muhammad Ali, working with hip-hop dancers.

A Japanese artist works with an Urban Bush Women choreographer in New Orleans, along with artists from Burkina Faso and Jamaica.

Ronald Brown, director of the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Evidence, A Dance Company, has incorporated dance from the Senegambia region of West Africa in his own choreography.

The dance scene in Alabama has grown to become very vibrant!

Not many people can move Lady Gaga to tears with their dancing. Marko Germar did. His talent is so powerful and passionate. Here’s a look back at how it’s done.

Urbanity, a hot young contemporary company tucked away in the South End of Boston, is one of my favoriet new troupes. I saw them at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in August. It’s great to see a young company making it happen and beginning to receive well earned recognition.
