Bulareyaung Pagarlava

Thanks to Paul Daniggelis in Texas for the following info:
Taiwanese choreographer Bulareyaung Pagarlava has been invited by the New York-based Martha Graham Dance Company to do a companion piece to Deaths and Entrances for the troupe’s 85th anniversary celebrations.
This is the second collaboration between Pagarlava and the company,  following his 2009 contribution to Lamentation Variations, in which young choreographers respond to Graham’s Lamentation (1930).
“Bula is one of the talented, important, new voices in the international dance scene,” Janet Eilber, artistic director of the group, said. “When we decided we wanted a contemporary companion piece to Graham’s masterpiece Deaths and Entrances, we turned to Bula.”
Deaths and Entrances, which premiered in 1943, is based on the lives of the Bronte sisters. Here is the link.

Once again you have posted something very interesting which prompted me to read again Mr Daniggelis's article in the 2007 'Bronte Studies'.It was of some consolation to read the words , 'laymen and experts alike have struggled with (Dylan) Thomas's poetry', because I do but like it very much and 'Pied Beauty' is one of my favourites. Thanks for keeping readers up to date with things happening both near and far.

Sorry!! Just realised I have got my poets mixed up.'Pied Beauty', still a favourite,is by Gerard Manley Hopkins. Perhaps the Welsh name confused me or it could be that I am just confused!
