Jorma Goes A-List

Jorma Elo is “a dancemaker who has rocketed onto ballet’s A-list by virtue of choreography that is a thrilling blend of classical technique and contemporary dance. Jorma Elo has an affinity for the startling: Ballerinas with their legs stretched out to tomorrow, choreographic effects enhanced by mysterious lights and shadows, and undulating set pieces that intertwine or interrupt the ballerinas’ patterns of movement.”
