I happened to be in the audience that night. And by “happened to be in the audience,” I mean I circled the date, bought third-row tickets and sped off with the blessing of my wife, who was oddly confident that I’d be coming back. As a sportswriter who loves baseball and Geena Davis with an equal, if decidedly different, passion, it’s safe to say I’ve seen the movie a few times. (Davis has what the baseball scouts in “Moneyball” would call “the good face.”).

The synthesis was often stunning, even when the choreography was flawed, and it became a company instrumental in pushing contemporary dance into the brainy but emotionally expressive terrain that modern dance long dominated. Choreographers Hans Van Manen, who created more than 120 dances for the company, and former artistic director Jiri Kylian, Czech born and Royal Ballet trained, had everything to do with that achievement. Wednesday night, in the first of two nights at Cal Performances, that legacy was there in ghostly form only. NDT is now under the artistic direction of Paul Lightfoot, former company member and choreographer, with instrumental support from artistic adviser Sol Leon, also a former dancer with NDT.
