In an interview with the Los Angeles Times in 1966, Schallert lamented being cast as “the second man through the door,” or supporting player. “I did come close to a lead once,” he said. “This was a pilot I made for a series named ‘Filbert.’ But when the producers calculated the series would cost $75,000 per episode, they figured a top name would be needed in the lead to assure success. So they gave up the project. It was a hard pill to swallow.”. William Joseph Schallert was born in 1922, in Los Angeles ballet flat shoes. His father, Edwin, was drama editor of the Los Angeles Times from 1919 to 1958..
William spent his high school years in a seminary. After military service he graduated from UCLA and went to England on a Fulbright scholarship in 1952 ballet flat shoes. He studied repertory theater and lectured on American theater at Oxford University. In his early years he was a founding member of the Circle Theater in Hollywood. The director was Charlie Chaplin, whose son Sydney was a cast member. Schallert recalled that after a preview performance Chaplin would suggest a couple of things to correct. “When it was about five or six in the morning,” Schallert said, “Oona (Chaplin’s wife) would say ‘Come on, Charlie, let them go home. They’ve got a performance to do tonight.’”..
This big-concept, seven-part ballet — choreographed by Helen Pickett, and first performed May 6 at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts — is meant to be all about water. Set to a score by film and television composer Jeff Beal (“House of Cards,” “Monk”), it was costumed by Emma Kingsbury and given an evocative lighting design by Nicholas Rayment. The work was, in part, prompted by Jessica Yu’s 2011 documentary film “Last Call at the Oasis,” which shows the frightening state of the Earth’s water systems ballet flat shoes. But rather than give us an environmental, political or even poetic dance on this subject, choreographer Pickett — a noted resident choreographer at Atlanta Ballet — has devised (in her words) “a celebration piece … focusing on the abundant power and beauty of this necessary element.”..
“Oasis” opens with a tinkly waltz and projections of Disney-esque water drops splashing against Kingsbury’s decor —— which includes a series of wavy tubular forms made of a stringlike material and suspended from above. As three women dancers emerge backwards from the shadows, the music turns spectral. The costumes are elegantly decorated in geometric patterns, but — like the sculptural forms, video projections and lightning flashes — they don’t add up. In fact, as the dance unfolds against these confusing elements, it’s the big, lush score that steals the thunder ballet flat shoes.
In 1928 one of the creators of early modern dance, choreographer Doris Humphrey, made a pure dance ode to the nature of water in a masterpiece called “Water Study,” where kneeling, rounded-over bodies replicate the singular but unified action of waves ballet flat shoes. By contrast, Pickett uses movement that bobs, furiously turns, slices, leaps and seems to rupture the body, as if to echo the post-modern vocabulary of choreographer William Forsythe, former head of the pioneering Frankfurt Ballet, where Pickett danced for 10 years. While the follow through of the movement is fluid, everything else about it is confined, highly controlled and busy with steps that never accumulate to a force larger than themselves..
