« "Double Indemnity" on Cinqo de Mayo at Cornell Cinema, May 5 | Main | Stamps and Stars Forever: The Philatelic Art of Donald Evans (at Tibor de Nagy, until June 4, 2022) »

April 30, 2022


I had the pleasure of meeting the great Arthur Mitchell long after his retirement from dance. What a handsome, elegant, formal man. Everyone respectfully called him Mr. Mitchell, never Arthur. He talked about the joy of dancing with Balanchine's legendary ladies, Diana Adams and Suzanne Farrell, to name just two. His original performance with Adams of the Agon duet remains one of the most groundbreaking and brilliant moments in modern dance history. How the dancers can pull off that duet is beyond me. It amazes and scares me, no matter how many times I've seen it.

Thank you for posting these articles on the dance. I love them.
