By Pamela Reasner The Pittsburgh Press With dances about ghosts and skeletons, a blind man and the seven deadly sins, you could hardly call the American Dance EnsembleBallet Petrov program at the Pittsburgh Playhouse uplifting. But it introduces a new choreographer to Pittsburgh France's Jean Guelis. The theatricality of his conceptions, the concern with plot rather than abstraction and the staging of background dancers testify to Gue-lis's involvement with television. In "The Seven Deadly Sins," Lucifer (Roberto Munoz) was the first to emerge from the yawning, fanged mouth of hell in the backdrop. He remained onstage most of the time, goading the seven to greater sinning and claiming them in the end. Gluttony was my favorite: A Fal-staff-like Kenneth Johnson, his face molded into a pig snout, snarfed huge quantities of food and drink and paraded around the stage with a drumstick in each hand. Kristin Schleich as Envy preyed upon innocents with spider hands and pointed feet. Nicolas Petrov as a Scrooge-like embodiment of Greed fought off would-be thieves but succumbed to Catherine Groetzinger in a wonderful green costume covered in money. Pride (Douglas Bentz), preening on a red carpet, was drawn to a mirror and came face to face with Lucifer. (I missed the significance of the phones.) Laziness, Anger and Lust were weaker sections. The music, by Guelis's son Alain, was as dramatic as the subject matter and echoed the mood of each dance. The backdrop and red lighting created the perfect atmosphere; I'm not sure why they were abandoned for five of the sins. And I would vote for a brief blackout between each dance. Jean Guelis's other contribution was "The Blind," featuring Joseph Bowerman as a blind man, who, EVERGREEN HOTEL 821.1101 GARY VINCENT mm. 17 st. Mrs run WITH norm harm : N.

PATRICK'S IP lljtllir I when he can see, discovers his wife, best friend and children have lied to him. Bowerman's helplessness as he tapped with his cane while the others manipulated him was uncomfortable to watch. Kristin Schleich and Peter Deg-nan as the wife and best friend danced a body-hugging pas de deux. The content of the dance was very literal, as was the relationship between the movement and original score by Bruno Bontempelli. Another new piece on the program was Tome Cousins' four-section "Pressure Cookin'" to less interesting music by David vanTiegham. "Pressure Cookin'" used three men and three women in harem pants with geometric shapes appli-qued to their chests. Cousins moved the six all over the stage in varying combinations men and women, couples, four and two, two men. Thomas Dowping had a good grasp of floor-skimming footwork, hip rocks and mixing motions of the arms in the second section. In solos Downing threw himself into poses as if zapped by a strobe light, and Cousins kept the beat in place with knee and arm movements. There's a little bit of everything in "Pressure Cookin'," but it cooks. The program also included repeats of Ron Tassone's jazzy "Sing, Sing, Sing" and Nicolas Petrov's mime comedy "Je Ne Sais Pas Quois," plus a new divertissement to Saint-Saens' "Danse Macabre." The latter was more theater than dance, relying on black lighting to float bodies across the stage and show heads "separating" from the torsos of skeletons. About 150 attended last night.
