"I've been already there"

America's legendary choreographer George Balanchine didn't care much about the visual arts. He wished his ballets to be performed without sets, he even disliked costumes. There's a story that Lincoln Kirstein, who founded New York City Ballet with him, once invited Balanchine to go to a museum. "No thanks," he said. "I've been to a museum".

  1. The deeply freezed life exhibited in a museum may be a physical hurt for a ballet dancer who existantially is aligned on motion.
