aileen Posted January 30, 2013 Share Posted January 30, 2013 I had never come across this expression before until I read Alistair Macaulay's (less than enthusiastic) review of Liam Scarlett's Euphotic. By "overpartnering" he means (what he regards as) pointless manipulation of a women by her male partner. He also makes the same criticism about Christopher Wheeldon. Interestingly, he does not mention Wayne MacGregor whose choreography (imo) includes extreme contortion of the women's bodies. Is overpartnering a criticism which is frequently made? Which other choreographers has it been applied to? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
