Morphoses/The Wheeldon Company concluded its second season at City Center on Sunday afternoon. I wrote about both programs here and here, but decided to post some more rehearsal photos from Monotones II and two surprisingly good videos of Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s One and Lightfoot León’s Shutters Shut. Lighting and costumes are essential components of the otherworldly atmosphere in Monotones II, so it’s refreshing to see photos of the dancers in practice clothes, clearly working together in the studio to figure out the intricate partnering in this ballet. The videos will give you a sense of the rhythmic quirkiness in Shutters Shut and fluid movement in One, but as I always say, dance videos are no substitute for live performances.
