Balanchine | Liang | Proietto
In the work of Edwaard Liang, the clearly defined, almost crystalline geometry of George Balanchine’s neoclassicism meets freely flowing "biological" forms: patterns of bird swarms, specifically starlings, formed the starting point for his choreography. "Murmuration" is the term used to describe the phenomenon of the separation and intermingling of the individual swarms or parts of swarms. "Blanc" is the result of a commission for the Wiener Staatsballett, in which Daniel Proietto seeks to track down the "substrate" of Romantic ballet and its "white acts".
