If something’s gonna kill me, it would be those arabesques of his…

For the ballet ask, No. 23?

23. 
If you could create a company of five female and five male principal dancers, who would you chose?

Well, that’s a tricky one, isn’t it? Because you can’t very well just name your five favourite ballerinas and male dancers, because the 10 people should kind of match and be able to actually work together…

Like I love Karl Paquette and Edward Watson. But for all that is holy I cannot imagine ONE piece, that they could dance together. Or maybe…

Ugh…!

Oh, whatever!

Let’s say:

Alina Cojocaru, Francesca Hayward, Olga Smirnova, Agnes Letestu (don’t give a flying fuck she’s retired) and Nikola Márová (feeling a bit patriotic today).

And for men – Karl Paquette, Edward Watson, Johan Kobborg (same as Agnes), probably Hugo Marchand (still haven’t seen him in any big role, so this is purely based on the feeling I have, that he could do great with his career) and Mathieu Ganio (because I still pretend like he’s not THE first on this list. And on any list. Ever.)

This is not POB centred at all. (Just realized there’s no (active) POB female étoile. Weird…)
