Internationally acclaimed choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa looks to be on the cusp of becoming a Bay Area fixture. In March 2016, Lopez Ochoa’s “Prism” (2014), originally made for Washington Ballet, appeared on Silicon Valley Ballet’s home season after the company had toured it in Spain. Created to Keith Jarrett’s “Koln Concert,” the piece echoed the jazz music in movement and spirit and was a welcome introduction to her work red dance shoes. This past May, her evening-length piece of Southern decadence and steamy sex, “A Streetcar Named Desire” (2012) turned up in Berkeley danced by the Scottish Ballet under the auspices of Cal Performances. It was made in collaboration with theater director Nancy Meckler for the Scottish company and expanded the play in many ingenious ways — in dance, one gesture can mean so much more than dialogue..
Now Lopez Ochoa, of Colombian-Belgian origin and based in Amsterdam, is in San Francisco to re-stage her ballet “Requiem for a Rose” (2009) for the Bay Area contemporary ballet company, Smuin red dance shoes. I watched her put the dancers through their paces during the record-breaking heat wave (enough to wilt any flowers!) and then sat down with her to talk. When I ask which company “Requiem for a Rose” was originally made for, Lopez Ochoa says that “the first classical ballet company in the United States that invited me was Pennsylvania Ballet. Roy Kaiser (then artistic director) had seen my seven-minute duet ‘Before After’ and asked me to come make a work.”..
As for the work’s inspiration, it’s a deeply personal story. “I will always remember the day,” she says, “I was 17 years old, and I received a bouquet of red roses on my doorstep. It was from a 35-year-old man I had met at a ball I had gone to with my brother who was in the military. I called my mom and she said, ‘There is a language of flowers, so you have to count them. If there are six, it’s friendship; 12, he’s in love with you; 24, it’s a proposal.’ red dance shoes.
