— Karen D’Souza. Innocence and war. Critics have been stampeding to praise “War Horse,” the National Theatre of Great Britain’s World War I epic. Winner of six Tony Awards, including best play, this is the heart-melting tale of a little boy who follows his beloved horse into battle. Young Albert and his horse, Joey, find themselves lost amid the trenches, a no man’s land of smoke and blood. Life-size puppets capture the magic of galloping steeds in this historical spectacle based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel, which has also been made into a movie by Steven Spielberg. One of the most highly anticipated productions of the year, “War Horse” charges into San Francisco’s Curran Theatre Aug. 1-Sept cheap pointe shoes uk online. 9 as part of SHN’s Best of Broadway series. Tickets are $35-$100 (subject to change) at www.shnsf.com..
— Karen D’Souza cheap pointe shoes uk online. Getting ”Lucky’. Your typical TV show doesn’t star Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman. Nor does it delve deeply into the mysterious world of horse racing. Those are just two reasons why the new HBO drama, “Luck,” is so intriguing. Hoffman plays veteran mobster Chester “Ace” Bernstein. He has just completed a three-year stint in federal prison and wants to exact payback on the lowlifes he claims set him up. The cast also includes Nick Nolte and Dennis Farina, and the pilot was directed by Michael Mann, who thrusts viewers so close to the racing action that they’ll feel like they’ve been plopped on a saddle. “Luck” was created by David Milch, whose track record for HBO is one of hit (“Deadwood”) and miss (“John From Cincinnati”). But as a horse owner and gambler, he knows the terrain, so we wouldn’t bet against him. (“Luck” premieres at 9 p.m. Jan. 29 on HBO)..
— Chuck Barney. Visual arts. Remembering Bucky. Iconoclast, inventor, architect and author R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) was decades ahead of the rest of us. He coined the term “spaceship Earth” and popularized the concept of synergy when few people could conceive of “thinking globally.” He created the geodesic dome, proposed pollution reduction and argued that existing resources could supply enough food and shelter for everyone on the planet cheap pointe shoes uk online. Since his ideas are now largely forgotten, I’m really excited about “The Utopian Impulse: Buckminster Fuller and the Bay Area,” at SFMOMA March 31-July 29. It will include some 65 works — models, drawings, photographs, videos and more — on his achievements. It will also feature work from Bay Area designers inspired by Fuller, including Ant Farm architecture collective; North Face and Shelter Systems designer Bob Gillis; Plastiki sailboard builder David de Rothschild; the Whole Earth Catalog’s Stewart Brand; architect/urbanist Nicholas de Monchaux; and documentary filmmaker Sam Green.

— Bruce Manuel. Unrequited love. The San Francisco Ballet in January will take its first crack at one of the great staples of Russian literature with “Onegin,” based on Alexander Pushkin’s 19th-century verse novel about an aristocrat who coolly spurns a would-be lover and is made to pay for it the rest of his days cheap pointe shoes uk online. It was first adapted in 1965 as a three-act ballet by John Cranko using a score by Tchaikovsky (but not music from Tchaikovsky’s opera drawn from the same story). The ballet, known for its emotional and climactic pas de deux between Onegin and the woman he once spurned (who is now rejecting him), has been revived several times, including by the National Ballet of Canada in 2010. It’s that production that opens Jan. 27 at San Francisco’s War Memorial Opera House, where it plays through Feb. 3. Tickets are $36-$285; 415-865-2000, www.sfballet.org..
“Many companies are about one person,” says Anderson, a featured dancer in the New York City Ballet from 1985 to 1993. “When I moved here, I saw Smuin and LINES, and I thought there was a niche for something different. I grew up seeing a wide variety of fantastic dance. The most important thing that I did from the beginning was trying to gather a great repertoire, and not make it all about me.”. The winter season, which includes Jan. 28 and 29 at Castro Valley Center for the Arts and Feb. 17 through 19 at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, features the exquisite double pas de deux from Alexandre Proia’s “World to Come” and David Grenke’s “Vespers,” which is set to the music of Tom Waits cheap pointe shoes uk online. Anderson reprises his technically demanding and athletically challenging “Akimbo,” scored to the Kronos Quartet performing Ornette Coleman, Ben Johnston, Jon Hassel and Kevin Volans, while the company presents its premiere of “Footage,” by Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo founder Peter Anastos. The fascinating range of work has attracted an impressive cast of young dancers who seem eager for the challenge of interpreting such different visions. Building Company C’s eclectic repertoire wasn’t simply a matter of luck and pluck..
