Episode 16: Hear the Dance: Episodes

In this week’s installment of Hear the Dance, Silas Farley is joined by the two dancers who will perform the solo in Balanchine’s Episodes choreographed on Paul Taylor in 1959, NYCB Soloist Jovani Furlan and guest artist and former Paul Taylor company member Michael Trusnovec. Jovani, who performed the solo as a dancer at Miami City Ballet, shares his experience of learning the solo from former NYCB dancer Peter Frame, who’d learned it from Taylor in 1986 – and then teaching it to Michael in turn. Together they reflect on the special intimacy and historical excavation intrinsic to the oral tradition that has kept this special solo alive through the decades. (50:46)
