NYCB Vol. 4 No. 26 - Episodes

Allegra on Episodes: "When Balanchine created the part in Episodes for me, this role was a continuation of his interest in the abstract use of the body and the man manipulating the woman. [...] My partner makes his move. I react. He puts my foot a certain way and turns me, and that’s where I must go. I respond by echoing his energy. At the end, with a last curl of my body, I move from upside down and become right side up, finding a sinuous solution." — Allegra Kent in "Once a Dancer..." (affiliate link)
