What does it mean to find yourself? Is it better to follow a definite narrative, as seen in Guillaume Côté’s Being and Nothingness on the National Ballet’s Ratmansky and Côté program (May 31 performance), or to take a more abstract form, as in the other two pieces on the program, Alexei Ratmansky’s Symphony #9 and Piano Concerto #1?
