Former NYCB dancer Silas Farley is back to host a special 2-part episode of Hear the Dance devoted to the life and work of late choreographer Ulysses Dove. Beginning with a brief overview of Dove’s career, this part focuses on Red Angels, the first of two works he choreographed on NYCB. Associate Artistic Director Wendy Whelan, Pacific Northwest Ballet Artistic Director Peter Boal, and violinist Mary Rowell, all of whom performed in the ballet’s 1994 premiere, reunite to discuss Dove’s working style in the studio, the challenges presented by Red Angels’ unprecedented choreographic vocabulary, and the audience’s electric reaction on opening night. “It was all about owning your space and owning your voice,” says Whelan, “and that was Ulyssess at that time.” (45:21)
