“I grew up making dances in my bedroom long before I knew anything about dance. It was my outlet. I’d put on a song by Prince or Morrissey, and when I danced to it I’d feel like I was sharing my life with that singer, I’d feel like I was having a relationship with him.”Kyle Abraham, who recently turned 40, is widely regarded as one of the US’s most original choreographers, his talent acknowledged by accolades such as a MacArthur “Genius” award.
Love, grief, terror and desire: ballet can communicate raw physical emotion with an immediacy no words can match. But precisely because the art form lacks the contextualising power of language, its depictions of extreme sex and violence can struggle for nuance. Last month, when the Royal Ballet revived Kenneth MacMillan’s The Judas Tree, the work’s graphic portrayal of gang rape reignited a long-running controversy.
In 1973, when Twyla Tharp choreographed her first formal ballet, As Time Goes By, she was known as a maker of modern dance. The material she created – to the 3rd and 4th movements of Haydn’s Farewell symphony – was not only written in a radically loose-limbed, off-kilter style but also featured no spotlit pas de deux and no named stars. The ballet has now been revived for the Royal and, retitled The Illustrated Farewell, comes with a prequel that uses the first two movements of the Haydn symphony.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
