About the ballets:
Domenico Luciano's new untitled ballet features a soundtrack by Michael Jones, who is rearranging a classical piece, Andante by Dmitri Shostakovich, with added sound effects and a five minute soundscape tailored to Luciano's choreography. The 10 minute work features five dancers and will explore the equality of gender. He says that this ballet will be very different from the previous two pieces he has choreographed for Attitude on Santa Fe. According to Luciano, «Male and female dancers will be dressed the same, dance the same phrase, have the same movement vocabulary, and most likely partner same gender in a duet. This will be very contemporary movement, low to the ground, abstract, not really focusing on lines and aesthetic but enhancing the physicality of the dancers.»
Yosvani Ramos created his ballet Steps in the Night in 2000 for the English National Ballet's Choreographic Workshop. The ballet will feature five female dancers and two male dancers. The music is the first movement of Beethoven's 7th Symphony. «I have always wanted to do the whole 7th Symphony, which is in four movements, so the year after in 2001, I choreographed the second moment,» said Ramos. «It's neoclassical with strong classical language and a lots of off the leg partnering and lifts. It has a sexy feeling to it.»
