Alice Taylor and Martin Hurwitz perform a scene from Har-
old Pinter's one-act play "The Lover." The Residential
College production continues at East Quad through tonight.

Lit austerely, and choreo-
graphed with intelligent re-
straint by Ben Stevenson, the
three preludes were, regardless
of how they were intended, a;
vehicle for this talented woman
to display her virtuosity before;
an openly admiring audience.
Di Bona could easily becomej
the newest kind of pop hero-t
a ballet superstar. She's tech-
nically accomplished (indeed
the whole company performed;
at a high level) but beyond that l

company, pulled out all the
stops to create this genuinely
exciting number.
Commencing with a few min-
utes of light, airy, ensemble
dancing, the work then develops
into a showcase for six dancers
to parade their solo talents.
It's crowd-pleasing stuff, and
each dancer had his perform-
ance interrupted by applause at
least once, although at the end
the applause had a slightly per-
functory air about it. It was as
if having clapped for the first
three dancers, the second three
had to be applauded, honoring
an unbreachable rule of cour-

'l

tesy to the artists involved.
All the men danced well, but
I was especially impressed by
Zane Wilson, who was accom-
panied by a tambourine during'
his solo, and Chris Jensen.
Time out of Mind was the
company's concluding number,
and in some ways the most
interesting. The dancing was
innovative, technically flawless
and intriguing. It wasn't par-
ticularly beautiful, and it cer-
tainly wasn't as breathtaking,
but it was good to see the com-
pany explore the horizons of
the art form.
Zane Wilson, previously prais-
ed for his performance in Per-
cussion for Six Men, danced the
male lead opposite Helen Heine-
man, and was also effective in
this piece. Improbably large in
appearance, Wilson is a strong
dancer, and his excellent body
control was impressive.
