“Beamish is one of ballet’s choreographers du jour – a post-up-and-coming but not quite household name who is virtually ubiquitous, having presented “Conditional Sentences” in Wendy Whelan’s “Restless Creature” program in May (also at the Joyce), his company’s tenth anniversary performance in Vancouver, a world premiere at the Fire Island Dance Festival last month, and “Rouge et Noir” (reportedly an homage to the Ballet Russes) for the Ashley Bouder Project at this same Joyce Festival; and he gets to work with some of the finest dancers in the world. Of the pieces danced here, “Stay” and “Surface Properties” have more interest than the others, but each was skillfully crafted and superbly executed.”
