But the choreography is very hard, it consists of twisting our body in all directions, of non-classical coordinations, difficult jumps and turns. Here's an extract of the ballet from Youtube:
Unlike the other rehearsals of classical ballets where the corps de ballet, especially the understudies like me, spend most of the time sitting at the back of the studio and watching the others rehearsing, these rehearsals for Forsythe are a real physical challenge. We keep trying and trying different techniques and when come out from the studio we are exhausted and wet.
So, this week has been so intense that I feel a little sick today. I try my best not to get injured, I will not forgive myself if I miss the chance to perform in Japan next month.
Today, last day of work of the year of the Monkey 2016! Tonight I will travel to Lyon and celebrate Chinese New Year with my sister and my cousin. Here may I wish you all good health, every success and plenty of laughters in the coming year of the Rooster!
