Was it Michelle or Lori?
Below is a link to Michelle Kwans Dream of Desdimona. What is extremely clear to me is that that girl could interpret ANYTHING! Lori Nichol was terrific though at the organizing of the programs. Where has this went? Some would blame the new judging system but I guess I wonder if Michelle was as great as she was or if Lori Nichol and other choreographers have just used up all of their ideas. I know that Lori does choreography for other skaters but they just don’t look as complex and involved as this. I mean, even just the first 10 seconds of DOD has more stuff going on than some skaters for an entire program. So many skaters now have snippets of involved movement but the majority, bar Yu Na, sometimes Mao and Rochette, have programs full of stroking and jumps. There does not even seem to be an attempt to create a mood. Perhaps its that Michelle made it look so easy that I am taking for granted its complexity but I just wish more skaters, especially women would lend themselves to an all encompassing style.
Chime in guys.
