Not the least of Possokhov’s choreographic flaws are an adolescent and aggressively envious relationship to women, and frequent thematic contradictions that undermine the smooth surfaces he creates. In this work those were evident in the sole female figure of “Optimistic” — the radiant, soon-to-retire Lorena Feijoo — being cast as the “Commissary” on a Russian ship meant to echo the 1905 Potemkin, although her character is pulled from a play and Russian blockbuster film about the 1917 Russian Revolution called “Optimistic Tragedy.” She is meant to represent “freedom.”.
