“The [Atlanta Ballet] also gives the new work "Pavo," created by the Atlanta Ballet's own principal dancer Tara Lee, its world premiere. The piece is a meditation on the spiritual symbolism of the peacock, usually associated with beauty and pride, but here celebrated for its aspect of transformation, specifically its ability to digest some species of poisonous plants which allegedly make its plumage more vivid and beautiful. The piece becomes especially dramatic under Robert Hand, Jr.'s precise lighting design, which carves the floor and space into stark sections, and by Atlanta composer Nickitas Demos' pulsing live score for DJ and three musicians. The piece opens with dancers in tense, conforming postures, walking in rigid circles which gradually release through an agitated storm of movement. Especially lovely is the duet at the piece's center, danced splendidly by Christine Winkler and John Welker on opening night.”
