But in some cases, languages that seemed ripe with potential didn’t click for King. Holman thought for sure that Sami verse from Scandinavia would work, with its chanted poems that incorporate sounds evoking animal cries. But King passed on those poems and ended up using verse in the Hawaiian dialect of Ni’ihau, which Holman felt carried cultural associations too indelible for King’s ballet. He quickly discovered he was mistaken. Holman says, “The chants are so identifiable, but he’s used Hawaiian to extraordinary effect in the ballet — almost a phoenixlike arising of the dancers after a volcano. There’s nothing hula-esque, no cultural reference. It’s about what language does in itself and how crucial it is for identity. It’s so intellectually stimulating, and the sheer beauty of the construct was not what I was anticipated at all.”.

It’s also inexcusable that the audience can see actors coming and going off stage. All that’s required is a black curtain to cover them for their entrances and exits. That’s Stagecraft 101. Some of choreographer Camille Edralin’s dance routines work well, although it’s the numbers like “Kansas City” and “The Farmer and the Cowman” featuring mostly male dancers that are best. Fight scenes look reasonably real, thanks to director Marx, who is also listed as the fight choreographer. Jon Hayward’s sound is consistently clear, and it’s hard to fault Andrea Schwartz for the poorly lit scenes in Jud’s smokehouse, because it’s likely the director’s decision.
