An intriguing development of the classical technique by the brilliant young Canadian choreographer Brian Macdonald, performed in simple rehearsal clothes, entered into the Company repertoire during the 1963-64 season. The choreography progresses with the keyboard accompaniment of seven of J. S. Bach's well known Inventions to full Company on stage and full orchestra in three movements of a Concertino. During the final Toccata and Fugue, the audience is presented with a genuine surprise ending.
Macdonald is official choreographer to The Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and is at present Director of the Royal Swedish Ballet. "Aimez Vous Bach " earned the Gold Star for Choreography at the Paris International Festival in 1964.

THE STILL POINT
Choreography..........Todd Bolender
Music.........Debussy, String Quartet
"At the still point of the turning world, neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent or decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance."
from Burnt Norton--T. S. Eliot

Widely acknowledged as one of this choreographer's finest works, The Still Point was first produced in New York for the Dance Drama Company, an experimental group, in January of 1955. The Company presented the work for the first time publicly in St. John's, Newfoundland, on February 24, 1966. An American by birth, Todd Bolender was a founding member of The New York City Ballet, and currently he directs the Cologne Ballet in Germany.
