Rearray by William Forsythe reunited the choreographer and the dancer into an evolution of their prior work together decades ago In the Middle Somewhat Elevated. Although there were still dashes of beautiful lines present in the piece; it was highly characterized by the intellectual work that Forsythe is known by, and the lighting was just perfect.
27’52” by Jirí Kylián kept the audience glued to the stage. Effortless contemporary movement from the dancers combined with intrigue of what will happen next prevented me from blinking the whole time. At least, that is what it felt like. Watching NDT dancers perform is always a joy for me.
Finally, Mats Ek’s Bye, a very clever piece combining and unifying a Sylvie Guillem solo and film, was what maintained the audience applause for many curtain calls at the end of the show.
