Kyrgyzstan Journal: Departure Day (and Valencia day)

Barcelona International Airport
Thursday, September 29, 2011

As I wait for my flight to Valencia the company gets ready in DC for a rendezvous at Dulles International Airport for the journey to Central Asia and to Bishkek, the Capital city of Kyrgyzstan. Company E's debut concert takes place in the Opera House, in partnership with the US Department of State on October 6th with our friends a partners from Samruk Dance Company.

For us its the start of an incredible journey in these next months. Christian Denice makes his company premiere. We show Roni Koresh's extraordinary "Theater of Public Secrets" (that's Amanda in the table solo in rehearsal in Philadelphia earlier this month above) and spend a week teaching and dancing.

Everyone lands in Bishkek on Saturday and I leave Spain, from Madrid (after Valencia) on Sunday for a Monday arrival. Kathryn has done a brilliant job of organizing everything from DC while I've been out of the country. Jason has set a great itinerary of classes. The Company is dancing beautifully and they're ready....

An amazing way to begin.....
