Now that’s polka! It’s an ancient musical genre that was popular during the late 1800’s through the 1920’s. It’s a combination of songs and dances which are danced in steps, with a basic structure of verses, refrain, and counterpoint. Many of the songs are slow and have a melody that can be broken down into simple step-by-step movements.
This week we got an update on some exciting new polka-related developments. First up, this year the Polka Institute of the New York City Ballet has partnered with the Polka Institute of the Boston Ballet to present the world premiere of the ballet world premiere of the piece Deadman Walking. The ballet will be performed at the New York City Ballet under the baton of Maestro Patrick Meara.
That’s because the Boston Ballet is the only ballet company in the world to perform a work by the same composer as one of the pieces on the Deadman Walking ballet. The polka music is meant to represent a sense of melancholy, as well as a feeling of loneliness, loss, and isolation.
The composer of the polka is none other than Aaron Copland. And not just any cop, but a cop with a big heart, one who wanted to do something great with his life while on the side of the law. That’s why you should go to the Boston Ballet: they do great polkas and they’re great dancers.
While we’re talking about Aaron Copland, also mentioned in this trailer is his son, Aaron Copland II, who is the director of the Boston Ballet. We suspect he just wanted to see how much fun the polka was. Not as much fun as the polka itself, though, because it ended up sounding like a lot of polka-music, but still fun.
It’s nice to see that Aaron was very well taken care of in the end. His father was a well-known polka dancer, but Aaron was not. The polka seems to have ended up being a bit generic as he and his father are fighting for the title of world’s greatest polka, so its good that he was able to find a way to escape his father’s wrath.
That’s just a really nice ending. I’m sure the polka-scene will never be played with as much gusto. Though this is the first time I’ve seen a story trailer with a main character’s name in the title.
I have to admit I liked the ending of the main story trailer. It’s a little long, but it’s an awesome ending that I think would have been better if the main story trailers had been more like the story trailers.
The story trailer for Deathloop does contain some neat polka-themed bits of information. For one, it shows an image of a polka-dotted sky. It also shows a couple of different polka-dotted images, including one with a polka-dotted cloud. It also shows a polka-dotted image of a large, colorful man in a polka-dotted coat.
The polka-dots also appear throughout the game, in the main story trailer, and in the character portraits.
