They don't want to be amazing


I once overheard a dancer say that while creating new solo material.    I don't want to be amazing, he said.  I want do something different.  

Of course, he was (and still is) an extraordinary dancer.  They all are.  Amazing not only for their physical talent but also for that search for different ways to move.  Check it out for yourselves in these two clips from recent rehearsals for Scheherazade.  These run-throughs are like first drafts - the material is new, not yet refined and without a structure - and it's still pretty freaking amazing, right?
