Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Wednesday, October 23, 1974 Anti-war ballet added Canada 9s glitter freaks to repertoire of troupe change sequins attire WINNIPEG (CP) The Green Table, a modern classic anti-war ballet with origins in Germany in the early 1930s, is being added to the repertoire of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. Described as a savage and tragic satire on diplomacy and war, The Green Table was conceived and first produced by Kurt Jooss during Hitler's rise to power. Because of political pressures at the time, he and his company fled Germany for France and then to England where they settled at Dar- tington Hall. Jooss' daughter, Anna Markard, is here to introduce the ballet to the Royal Win- nipeg company. Apart from the Jeffrey Ballet at the City centre in New York, the Royal Winnipeg will be the only one to have it in North America. The Green table is to have its Canadian premiere here Nov. 13. The table in the ballet is the one around which politicians and diplomats meet, the mes- sage of the ballet is the time- less one of the sufferings and death that can be inflicted on people by the decisions of their political never feel the sufferings themselves. Mme. Markard said in an in- terview her father's choreography in the work is so clear, direct and economical of movement that the message comes across to any audience, young or old. It is danced to music com- posed by Frederick Cohen, Jooss' longtime collaborator and friend, written for two pi- that helps give the ballet its powerful impact. Until about six years ago, Jooss kept close control on performing rights for all his ballets, but he retired then and has since permitted eight or ten companies to acquire The Green Table, his most sought-after work. While The Green Table was conceived during Hitler's rise, Mme. Markard said it is still a valid work for today's ballet stage because the problems of power politics are never- ending. The ballet runs only 33 min- utes and has eight scenes, be- ginning and ending with politi- cians and sented by dancers in face around a green baize table. The figure of Death claiming his victims is the leading role for the 16 dancers. The Royal Winnipeg regards the Jooss work as an impor- tant addition to its repertoire, and it will be worked into its travelling program. MONTREAL (CP) Can- ada's glitter freaks may soon be able to wear their sequins in a more patriotic manner. Although Randy Bishop traded his green hair for some blonde waves, the bejewelled fans of David Bowie, the sex- less wonder, and Bette Midler, the saucy queen of camp, are beginning to follow the career of this Montreal pop singer. At a recent performance at Old Montreal's Nelson Hotel, a popular youthful watering hole, Bill Mann of The Gazette said: "It was, then, like a camp- site. A site for camp, that is. "It was nice. I mean, Bette Midler's never been to Montreal but we have our own strange people and a lot of them hang around with Bishop and most of them were lurching around last night." When Bishop sang with a group called The Wackers, he sported green hair, wore covergirl makeup and dressed in a blinding array of sequins. His David Bowie look, how- ever, has been exchanged for more casual apparel. Recently, The Bay announc- ed that Bishop and fran- cophone balladeer Richard Huet were to appear in concerts at its stores. The Bay.allowed the singers to pick at the store clothes they would wear in real life, not in album covers or publici- ty stills. Bishop picked clothes typical of his new looks, jeans and shirts, sweaters 'and donegal tweed slacks. He described the clothes as his "Place des Arts outfit." Clothes may make the man but talent makes the pop singer. Juan Rodriguez, in a recent Montreal Star review of Bishop, said: "Despite all the pretension, Bishop is one of the more believable hip-pop stylists. His tunes are light but they are not played flimsily because to do so would be to ruin their whole impact. "The lyrics and Bishop's de- liveries of them are easy to get in and out of but their blandness is not unpleasant." Pop music popular NEWARK, N.J.
