Howerton first danced for Wingrove in 1983, and he has worked with her intermittently ever since. At one point, he thought he was ready to retire, but “she always manages to pull me back on stage,” he says. He was studying at San Jose Dance Theatre when she set a piece on the company that gave him a first glimpse of modern dance. Evidentially impressed with his abilities, she recruited him for a role the next season when an injury sidelined one of her dancers. What has kept him engaged with the Wingrove company all these years are abundant opportunities to stretch as an artist, as in her 2002 piece “Van Gogh: In Search of the Sun.” Inspired by the painter’s correspondence with his brother Theo, the dance gave Howerton a role that “was really acting as much as dancing pointe shoe shops. She gives her dancers the opportunity to bring something to the roles that they dance. That’s what keeps me dancing with her.”..
Since Wingrove has created more than 100 dances, no single program can encompass her full range of expression. She finds raw creative material in a vast range of music, literary sources and the visual arts. One of the “Heart on Fire” premieres, “Moments,” is set mainly to Glazunov’s “5 Novelettes for String Quartet” and was inspired by the verse of award-winning Chinese-American poet Li-Young Lee. The earliest work in “Heart on Fire” is 1990’s “Dark Edges,” a piece for three dancers set to a score by Lou Harrison. Among the most recent is “Janis,” a piece Wingrove started working on before the national PBS broadcast of the documentary “Janis: Little Girl Blue” rekindled interest in Janis Joplin pointe shoe shops.
Set to the songs “Me & Bobby McGee,” “Move Over” and “Little Girl Blue,” the dance features Lori Seymour, “who’s an actor as well as well as a fine dancer,” Wingrove says. “She also did a piece about Sylvia Plath for me years ago and was so expressive pointe shoe shops. When you hear Janis’s voice, you can’t help but be moved by it.”. When Wingrove talks about dancers, her voice takes on an affectionate, almost reverent tone. Clearly energized by the collaborative process, she doesn’t come to a new piece with every step mapped in detail. She’s more interested in discovering with dancers what they can say within the framework she has devised..
Leonard Bernstein’s “On the Town,” about three sailors who land in New York City for a 24-hour leave before shipping out to fight in World War II, will be presented in a new semi-staged production May 25-29 at Davies Symphony Hall. With music direction by Michael Tilson Thomas, stage direction by James Darrah and a stellar cast that includes members of the musical’s recent Broadway revival, these performances promise a first-rate look at an American classic. “It’s such a great show, and we’re so excited to be doing it in San Francisco,” says actor-singer-dancer Clyde Alves, who, as Ozzie, is reuniting with Tony Yazbeck (Gabey) and Jay Armstrong Johnson (Chip) from the 2014 Broadway production pointe shoe shops. “There’s been a lot of texting going on between us, and the energy is really building.” Joining the three principals, also reprising their Broadway roles, are Megan Fairchild as Ivy and Alysha Umphress as Hildy. Operatic mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard joins the cast as Claire. Rounding out the ensemble are Shuler Hensley as Pitkin, San Francisco Opera Center director Sheri Greenawald as Madame Dilly and, as Narrators, stage and screen star David Garrison and Tony-nominated lyricist and composer Amanda Green, who is the daughter of “On the Town” co-lyricist Adolph Green..
Alves, who earned rave reviews as the ebullient Ozzie, said these performances give the New York artists a rare opportunity to revisit the show. “It’s a special thing,” he said. “As a musical theater actor, you’re constantly doing new shows, meeting new people. You get used to being with casts for a short time and then saying goodbye. So we’re glad to be coming back together in a new scenario —–and doing this score at such a high musical level with the Symphony orchestra.” “On the Town,” composed by a then 25-year-old Bernstein, had its first performance in December, 1944. The musical was drawn from the composer’s score for the Jerome Robbins ballet “Fancy Free” (which premiered earlier that year.) With lyrics by Betty Comden and Green, the new show was an instant hit. Bernstein’s songs cover a range of styles, from the jazzy “I Can Cook, Too” to the reflective “Lonely Town” and the grand “Coney Island Ballet” — and, of course, the indelible “New York, New York (it’s a helluva town!)”. Tilson Thomas, a champion of Bernstein’s music, performed the score with the Symphony in 1996, his inaugural year as music director pointe shoe shops. The most recent Symphony performances were in 2008..
