The Future of the Vienna State Ballet… at last a decision!
Since today 12:20pm there is a final decision about the future direction of the Vienna State Ballet.
Nearly three years ago, I was the only one to criticize and foresee what was coming – after (I think) 35 Dancers left the company and the curtains opened for the first time in this “period”, one could plainly see who had been with the (Legris’) company before and who had not… Arms, just arms. One could read the technique issues just by watching them… After nearly 1 and half years, “colleagues” began to understand what I was saying. Because I had been been the only one to contradict and keep a distance from this direction, I can say that I am not one to “lick boots”. My commitment to honesty in what art is concerned, is much more important than with “casual acquaintances” during the intermission in an Opera House. I try to be as honest as I can.
