Even if you're an artist--maybe especially if you're an artist--spending all your time with your peers can limit you. "I felt very much I was isolated in the artistic world," choreographer Sasha Waltz said in a recent interview from her Berlin home. "Everywhere you turn around, you run into your own. I felt, as an artist, there are other things that are more important and to face that."

Imagine movies of a slinky jazz adagio, a volatile apache-dance and a twisting tango cut into fragments and then spliced together in the wrong order. The surprising yet familiar result would be something like the brilliant love-hate duet performed by Sasha Waltz and Nasser Martin-Gousset in Waltz's "Travelogue: Twenty to Eight" at Occidental College on Friday. A new force in German dance-theater, Waltz relied on this kind of discontinuity throughout her hourlong social satire.

James Conlon, the music director of Los Angeles Opera, was in Milan, Italy, this week to conduct the opening-night ballet performance of Hector Berlioz's "Romeo and Juliet" at La Scala. But as things sometimes happen in Italy, Wednesday's big opening was canceled due to a strike by members of the chorus. A notice on the website for Teatro alla Scala read that the performance was called off due to the strike organized by unions representing the chorus.  The new production of Berlioz's piece features choreography by Sasha Waltz and is a co-production between La Scala, Deutsche Oper Berlin and Opéra National de Paris.

Character dance has long been one of the specialties--and glories--of German theater. But its emphasis on melding physical mannerisms into rich, quirky movement portraiture looks so archaic in the stripped-for-action world of contemporary dance that German choreographer Sasha Waltz's 1996 social satire "Allee der Kosmonauten" (Cosmonaut Avenue) often seems a weirdly backdated narrative divertissement in the tradition of such antiques as "Die Puppenfee" from 1888.

Movies Steve Zahn, above right, and Jack Black, center, go to great extremes in the comedy "Saving Silverman," to keep their best pal Jason Biggs from marrying a coldhearted and calculating Amanda Peet. They even recruit Neil Diamond for their mission. Opens wide Friday. Pop Music With the Beatles CD reminding the world that kids don't hold a monopoly on rock, what better time for another blast from a bygone g-g-g-eneration?

The growing catalog of dance on home video not only provides souvenirs of some of our favorite artists and works, but whole worlds of dance that seldom reach local stages. Two recent releases are especially noteworthy for linking the search for new forms of modern dance expression to the legacy of the art's pioneers.

Experimental and socially conscious choreographies dominated the dance year on local stages, often boasting upscale production values but with no loss in expressive rigor. The trend began early, with Eiko and Koma's butoh-influenced "When Nights Were Dark," at the Japan America Theatre in February.
