A film by Gabrielle Lamb

In Fall of 2012, after an 8-year hiatus, the Dance Theatre of Harlem returned to the stage under the direction of founding member and former principal ballerina Virginia Johnson. On the eve of the company's comeback, filmmaker Gabrielle Lamb, herself a dancer, followed young members of the DTH Ensemble (second company) who aspired to make the transition into the main troupe.  In a collage of voice-overs by Ms. Johnson and the dancers with both present-day and archival footage, Ms. Lamb tells the story of the talented artists who have created a unique and resilient American institution.

Lamb, Gabrielle

Gabrielle Lamb, winner of a 2014 Princess Grace Award for Choreography, is a New York City-based choreographer and dancer.  Born in Savannah, Georgia, she was trained at the Boston Ballet School and joined Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal in 2000, earning her soloist promotion in 2003.  At the invitation of choreographer Christopher Wheeldon she moved to New York City in 2009 to join his company Morphoses.  

Her movement style and theatricality have been profoundly influenced by the choreographers whose work she danced during her performing career, including George Balanchine, Jiri Kylian, Mats Ek, Ohad Naharin, Nacho Duato, and Shen Wei. Since moving to New York she has also created leading roles in new works by contemporary artists such as Pontus Lidberg, Luca Veggetti, Matthew Neenan, Adam Barruch, Shannon Gillen, and Emery Lecrone.

Western classical dance enters the modernity of the 20th century: The Ballets russes and the Ballets suédois

If the 19th century is that of romanticism, the entry into the new century is synonymous of modernity! It was a few decades later that it would be assigned, a posteriori, the name of “neo-classical”.
