In July, her co-choreographed duet with Neumann, Melnick again seemed to be taking the lead. Her movement is dancerly and Neumann's more athletic. His moves are weighted, casually projected into space, hers are delicate but sharply focused. He keeps an eagle eye on her. They're trying to adapt to each other, and enjoying it. Behind them, the back wall of the Doris Duke Theater has been opened up onto a courtyard with a big pine tree and some buildings behind it. The light of a cloudy afternoon filters in. The tree doesn't move a muscle.
