For our German Program last October, I had a friend (Brian Simcoe) take some shots from the wings and he captured this video. I think it offers a glimpse into the camaraderie we feel for each other on a daily basis, but especially right before the curtain goes up. Circling up like this and "feeling each other's energy" was suggested to us by Noah Gelber specifically for this ballet, Forsythe's The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude. He told us to really connect with each other before we went on stage and also while we were dancing because it was such a difficult ballet to dance. A little eye-contact and a smile can help you pull out all the stops when you've got nothing left to give towards the end of a performance.
In this video: Candace Bouchard, Mia Leimkuhler, Kathi Martuza, Adrian Fry, and Steven Houser
