The director’s office: just a step away from the stage

The trend is for top ballet companies (i.e. those with international classical/modern
repertoires) to choose as their directors young dancers or choreographers who have
never before worked in such a capacity: a new phenomenon. Directing a company is
an artistic task yet, at the same time, a managerial one vis-à-vis interrelating with
one’s in-house “workers” and with the outside world. Let’s take a look here at the
new faces who are in the drivers’ seats in various companies today.
