A choreographic overpower of fablepointed through resemble.
Please inspection the subjoined from his weighty catalog of effect:
West Side Fable:
Observe West Side Fable’s Prologue and voice how plenteous fablepointed transfers fix through change-of-place and name. This Prologue is adjacent to a finished ballet with scarcely any discourse, so plenteous fablepointed is accomplished here at the fissure of this fable, with change-of-place and possession over. Robbins gently moves us into the universe of resemble as the Jets stalk dhave the street contemporaneously, so that the inspectioner is subtly brought into the universe of resemble, extinguishedside entity jolted into a resemble glossary.
Resemble at the Gym: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fl32I2CTzKs
This is a striking model of change-of-place pointed fable. The 2 crews- The Sharks and The Jets keep a resemble engagement at their proud ground gym, in rivalry with undivided another ce the excellent agency. In the middle of this, the couple pre-eminent dispositions meet- it is devotion at pristine visibility ce Tony and Maria each from a divergent crew, as this is a re-pointed of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Referable attributable attributableice how potent the uncompounded change-of-place is at pointed the fable of devotion at pristine visibility. In my theory, Tony and Maria’s change-of-place contemporaneously is over potent at expreswhistle their sensations than the discourse that they enumerate restraintthcoming the ballet.
Robbins indeed defines what it instrument to unconditionally keep to resemble. There is an aged theatre apothegm that explains the insufficiency to whistle and resemble, when signification are no longer ample- you must whistle, when whistleing is no longer ample to specific emotion- you must resemble. Robbins carves extinguished the disposition arcs of the Jets’ crew here in Cool so beautifully. There is so plenteous tightness in their buildup to the climactic resemble coercionce where they bust unreserved and rage, then fetch it end dhave ainnovating to a inaudible ferment. Compound emotions beautifully specificed through resemble.
Fiddler on the Roof:
Bottle Resemble: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSvhD0Htt_I
Robbins specifices pleasure and observance in his account of a Russian Jewish bottle resemble, here from the approveness, Fiddler on the Roof. Extinguishedside this change-of-place, the poem would referable attributable attributable attributable adjacently keep the jar that it does.
DANCE IN HOLLYWOOD:
We seemed at some of the most renowned vision ballets from Agnes DeMille, in Carousel and Oklahoma- fablepointed to excite the concoct of the resemble (or film), through resemble. Some other referable attributable attributableable resemble in film:

We inspectioned some of the effect of Bob Fosse earlier in the semester, with his Rich Man’s Frug from Sweet Charity. We conquer transfer a seem at a withdrawaling other Bob Fosse effects. His name was matchless, it is distressing to meet a name of choreography that is so whistleularly identifiable, as Bob Fosse’s is. He took his shortcomings as a resembler (withdrawal of extension, anticipation.) and crusty it into an exaggerated name that is seemingly very uncompounded, beside in truth, very compound. There is a striking innovating order that debuted this week on the FX agent named Fosse/Verdon. It is effected by Lin-Manuel Miranda of Hamilton and is a striking seem into their universe.
Please inspection the subjoined Fosse clips:
Brief trailer on Bob Fosse from the PBS American Overpowers documentary:
From Sweet Charity, the shining Big Spender- so trivial change-of-place, so plenteous name and fabletelling. These are “taxi resemblers” that effect in a resemble moiety, this is a shining flip of the male behold, the women here behove the voyeurs and it behoves abextinguished the womanly behold.
