I am giving this two stars because I enjoyed seeing Sterling Hyltin and Tiler Peck, two true artists, at work. But otherwise, this documentary disappoints.
I could appreciate the heritage from Robbins and Balanchine that this company has got. And I just observed what every member of the company who was shown, was the continuation of such geniuses. Their professionalism, respect, beauty, blind devotion, commitment come from them. There will never be a Balanchine again, so the NYCB is doing exactly what it should: to encourage young choreographers to do their best, and maybe they'll do at least one ballet that compares to a Balanchine masterpiece. HIS ESSENCE is everywhere in the NYCB as well as at his theatre, his temple.
This is a film to be felt more that analyzed. At the end, when the music of Symphony in C is playing and Lincoln Center appears, some tears came out by remembering all the history of this unique company.
But this one is different. Different because it is
a young dancer making the transition to doing
choreography for the Company. So we share
the whole creative process beginning with him
in a studio building Ballet 422 element by element
through to performance... and height of that experience
and then back to his own continued growth as a dancer...
