The circus-like bandits (Ramon Moreno, Shannon Bynum and Akira Takahashi), and the final “procession” spice this “Carmen” with dollops of humor and wit. But it remains at its core a tough, nihilistic work, deeply in the throes of France’s post-World War II pessimism. Ballet San Jose wrung every ounce of theatrical truth from this “Carmen” at the Friday opening, though in Meijer’s first solo she projected little of the role’s smoldering sexual allure. It was in the long, difficult Pas de Deux that she morphed into a dangerous femme fatale, who would ultimately burn herself up. The performance was a major dramatic accomplishment for a dancer primarily known for her refined technique.

According to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, between 200,000 and 400,000 Vietnamese refugees died at sea trying to escape the country by boat or ship. “80 percent we knew we would die in the ocean, but we would rather die in the ocean than die in a communist country,” he said. Nguyen has dedicated his upcoming performance to the thousands of “Vietnamese boat people” who died at sea. “These are the experiences I bring to my dance,” Nguyen said. He admits his work is informed by the atrocities of the war but hopes that his upcoming performance will ultimately inspire forgiveness. “Past is past. Now we need to stay together as one whole and work together and help the country become better, especially for the younger generation.”.
