Javerbaum clearly has positioned himself to offend an awful lot of people. Since he is an equal-opportunity blasphemer, the outrages are widely distributed, from the section of this faux Bible that he calls “Fallopians” — which is very short because, he says, Simon & Schuster did not really want to hear his opinions about abortion — to the walking on eggshells that he does in a “Quranicles” section. Although Javerbaum is quick to specify that “thou shalt not find any Danish cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad anywhere in this book,” his explanation of why devout Muslims do not want their pictures taken is enough to win him enemies all around the globe.

“Return to a Strange Land” is unambiguous about where it stands and the toll that death, loss and transfiguration take. It was exactly right to place it at the center of the program, as the artistic fulcrum. Set to the melancholic Sonata No. 1 by Leos Janacek, it is Kylian’s lament for his mentor, John Cranko, who died suddenly in 1973. This is a work of expected Kylian depth and seamless craft that unfolds like beautifully crafted poetry. Terez Dean is the central female in Part 1, echoing the central role women had in the other two works. But the men engage her like angels whose support has primary moral and spiritual importance, not like department-store armature. Later, we see Jo-Ann Sundermeier beautifully fold and unfold with Joshua Reynolds and Jonathan Dummar, the three entwining in demanding, natural and human patterns that carve layers of meaning into space.
Gosvener was making his morning rounds when Lorna Aldridge stepped out of the room where she was visiting an ailing friend, “She was at the end of the hall, the light of the rising sun coming in behind her as if she was wearing a halo,” he says, Gosvener and Aldridge locked eyes, and that was the start of an amazing journey, finding their soul mate when both were 54, and falling deeply in love, “A lot of people out there have given up,” small sequin - starlight fuchsia hot pink slipper ballet flats dress shoes Gosvener says, “but our story shows what’s possible.”..
That’s a tall order, but Lustig seems to have taken the measure of what’s possible and set his company on a bold new path. The spring season will open May 23 at the Paramount Theatre with “Five Decades of Dance,” a two-part program: “Early Highlights” celebrates the vision and achievements of the company’s founding artistic director, Ronn Guidi. “Carte Blanche” presents commissions by several choreographers associated with Oakland Ballet. “Early Highlights” includes excerpts from Diaghilev’s iconic Ballets Russes productions such as Bronislava Nijinska’s “Les Biches” and “Le Train Bleu”; Léonid Massine’s “La Boutique fantasque”; and Mikhail Fokine’s “Petrouchka” and “Scheherazade,” as well as Vaslav Nijinsky’s entire “The Afternoon of a Faun” and Guidi’s pas de deux from “The Secret Garden.”.
