Born in Leiria, Portugal, Antonio Casalinho is an outstanding young dancer who has trained at the Academia Annarella since he was 8 years old. This short film includes clips of him in class and also performing James' variations in Maina Gielgud's production of La Sylphide Act II, which the school, under the direction of Annarella Roura Sanchez, presented in October.
Originally entitled Forme et Ligne, Squeaky Door (as it has become known) was created on Maina Gielgud by Maurice Béjart in 1970. The choreography is set to four sections from Pierre Henry’s Variations pour une Porte et un Soupir. Filmed at the National Opera and Ballet in Amsterdam, this video shows Gielgud coaching Mariinsky Ballet first soloist Maria Khoreva in the solo.
Bolshoi Ballet first soloist Igor Tsvirko, who impressed audiences with his performances in Spartacus, Don Quixote and The Bright Stream in London this summer, is the subject of Dance Europe's latest video filmed and produced by Emma Kauldhar and Andrej Uspenski.
