Blergh. I’ve been down for the count with what I like to call “the ick”, so I’m behind on posts, BUT…I’m excited because this week is Joffrey Week! Tomorrow night is opening night of Winter Fire, a triple bill of contemporary works at the Auditorium Theatre and Saturday is the Chicago premiere screening of the documentary, Joffrey Mavericks of American Dance at the Gene Siskel Film Center. A second screening is scheduled for Feb. 22nd, but if you can’t make either and are curious about the roots of this uniquely American ballet troupe, you can purchase the DVD on the website.
Look for my preview/interview with Forsythe répétiteur Glen Tuggle and my review/report on the movie and post-show discussion led by the Chicago Sun Times’ Hedy Weiss.
