Mozart In Lead Weights

Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart tries some theatrical takes on the composer – in this case, Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker. “The dance language of de Keersmaeker’s piece, which is severely limited, ranges from shards of classical ballet that appear warped in their execution—inadvertently, I believe, for lack of expertise in that department—to motions suggesting jungle animals, as if to imply that human passions, even when sung about with infinite delicacy and sophistication as they are in Mozart, have to do with the primal and the wild.”
