If only Lewis Segal could have viewed instead of reviewed Daniel Ezralow's memorable and stirring "Mandala" (March 23). Perhaps then he too might have been moved by the rich and breathtaking journey I found "Mandala" to be. KAREN DELSHAD Los Angeles I saw something entirely different from what Segal reports. He mentions Ezralow's arrogance. I saw pride, good body, good movement and an ingenuous delight in being alive, and in dancing. MARJORIE L. FASMAN Beverly Hills

Thank heaven for Ann Carlson. In "Daniel Ezralow & . . . ," a 13-part showcase of pop modernism dominated by hard-sell gymnastics, this Illinois performance artist not only dared to explore natural motion, she also held a mock auction for the event, satirizing many of its expressive pretensions.

Nearly naked and bathed in golden light, Daniel Ezralow stands on the stage of the Freud Playhouse at UCLA striking sculptural poses in front of a projection screen that shows a moving panorama of the antique Arena di Verona in Italy. Lush, shimmering music by Michel Colombier and slides of ancient statues that appear on additional wall screens help the 41-year-old dancer-choreographer create a classic statement of butch pulchritude: Ecce Homo--Behold the Man.

June 5, 1995 | DANIEL EZRALOW, Daniel Ezralow, a Los Angeles native, is a former member of the Paul Taylor and Momix dance companies, and a co-founder of Iso Dance Theatre. His choreography can be seen locally this fall in L.A. Music Center Opera's "The Flying Dutchman."
I am writing in response to the review (Calendar, May 15) of my dance concert "Daniel Ezralow & . . . " presented at Wadsworth Theater as part of the UCLA Performing Arts Series. It clearly was not important to the reviewer that never before and perhaps never again will audiences in Los Angeles be able to see such an eclectic group of internationally recognized dancer-choreographers assembled on stage together in the same evening.

"Are you coming home tonight?" Arabella Holzbog asks her fiance, Daniel Ezralow, whom she's visiting on the Sony lot. It's a valid question in light of the pace he's keeping, preparing for this week's "Mandala"--his full-evening dance solo at UCLA's Freud Playhouse--and debuting as choreographer of the Oscars Monday night. On Stage 24, the 41-year-old Angeleno rehearses seven male dancers for the Academy Awards bash.

The Times' review of the dance/gymnastics work "Aeros"--created by choreographers Daniel Ezralow, Moses Pendleton and David Parsons with Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas of "Stomp" and featuring members of the Romanian national gymnastics team--would normally have covered the run's opening performance tonight for publication Saturday. Due to work still being done on the lighting of the show, the producers asked instead that reviewers attend Saturday's performance.

Whatever happened to Lina Wertmuller? A decade ago she was one of the most exciting film makers in the world, capping a series of inspired, socially conscious comedies with "Seven Beauties," in which she argued provocatively that only in chaos is there freedom. The irony is that her own hard-earned struggle for freedom as an artist has ended up in utter chaos. Wertmuller's shoot-from-the-hip style, which has always been jagged, has become so slapdash as to be downright arrogant.

Sex, thy middle name is River North Chicago Dance Company. Talk about bodies in motion. This 13-member troupe gives new meaning to the word exhibitionism. And what stuff was on display. Under the artistic direction of Frank Chaves, the company ran riot in a nine-part program of old and new works at Cal State L.A.'s Luckman Theater on Saturday. Which isn't to say that all the choreography was as dynamic as the dancers; it wasn't.

If you didn't see the unusual showcase of choreographed gymnastics when "Aeros" played the Southland in January--and let's be honest, most of us didn't--you've got another opportunity, because Bravo is presenting a taped version today. As a bonus, there is a documentary recounting how this collaboration between U.S. choreographers and the Romanian Gymnastic Federation came to be. The two-hour package of performance and background premieres here at 5 p.m. and repeats at 9 p.m.
