"There is only one Brando. He is the God- father, the centerpiece of what promises to be the 'Gone With The Wind' of gangster movies." -PAUL D. ZIMMERMAN, NEWSWEEK ONE SHOW SUNDAY at 8 P.M. ONLY -V LABOR WASHINGTON (CP) Cana- dian choreographer Brian Mac- donald got a roasting from a Washington critic after two of his ballets were presented at the Kennedy Centre by the visiting Harkncss Ballet of New York. Critic George Gelles of The Evening Star said the two works suggest that Macdonald is the "most -vulgar choreogra- pher currently at work." "His dances have a gutter sensibility that always strives for the cheapest Gelles WTote. "Emotion, even tender emotion, is expressed solely in terms of crude violence, and sex is made to seem a sin." The remarks were made to include both the premiere ot Macdonald's staging of Fire- bird, to music by Igor Stravin- sky, and Time Out of Mind, which Macdonald created about 10 years ago. Washington Post reviewer Jean Battey Lewis had praise for the lavish production of Firebird, said to have cost more than and found Macdonald's choreography "in- but said it did nol allow the title character "its full exotic allure." She wrote somewhat neutral- ly of the "high-frequency stri- dency" of Time Out of Mind and its "erotic, frenetic chore- ography." Macdonald. whose works are in the repertoire of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet as well as in at least seven companies in the U.S. and Europe, is a former director of both the Harkness and the Royal Swedish ballets. He is to direct the staging ol the Mozart opera, Cosi Fan Tutte, at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa next month.
