Joffrey’s marketing for Othello enlists chiaroscuro and sweaty biceps in HD.


Building upon the approach of its print campaign, the Joffrey website (and dancer Fabrice Calmels’ blog at ChicagoNow) has added a high-zoot video for their production of Lar Lubovitch’s Othello, which opens October 14 at the Auditorium. It will be my first time seeing Lubovitch’s approach to narrative-driven choreography — his plotless pieces barely touch the theatrical stuff. The Elliot Goldenthal ballet definitely has its fans and has been steadily active in the 12 years since its premiere at American Ballet Theatre. I’m ready for anything.
