Featuring four works by a quartet of male choreographers, the program underlined the aesthetic variety of today’s genre of contemporary ballet, now a container so broad that almost any work that uses ballet-trained bodies can be included in the category.

The two of them, along with others including friend Michael deTrane, 24, recently went to an In-N-Out Burger for lunch. Each got “double-double” hamburgers and Pabst, 65, proudly wore the burger chain’s signature paper hat for the rest of the day. DeTrane didn’t want one, insisting he only wears hats made of cloth.
