Yet another dance company has found inspiration in the work of David Bowie.  The Michael Clark Company will be touring a new performance this summer that is based on the Seventies-era works of Bowie, Lou Reed, and Iggy Pop.  Choreographer Michael Clark took particular interest in the work of the artists did during the Seventies since it was a creative time that produced masterpeices from all three working together and separately.  The show will premiere on June 25 and 26, 2009 in Venice and tour Europe into 2010.

    My former-ballet-person sister is certainly a fan, although not to the point of my obsessional behavior. I can visualize the glam scene interpreted through ballet, although narrative is unfashionable these days. It’d be funny, too, and that’s even worse.

    I don’t keep up with ballet (other than what VOGUE tells me) so I had no idea that a narrative was out of fashion. Interesting trend! Let’s hope the ballet uses Bowie’s work wisely.

    Nice friendly avatar…a lot of companies are still into that George Balanchine, “Other companies put on ballets…we dance” thing.

    Love the dancing in the “Fame ’90″ video, BTW. That was La La La Human Steps, I recollect.
