Dancer Parrish Maynard, looking back 18 years, remembers choreographer Ulysses Dove's instructions to the cast of his new ballet. "He was very clear, and I said it to the dancers here," said Maynard, who's in Seattle to restage the piece for Pacific Northwest Ballet. " 'This ballet is about sex, and if you have an issue with that, then you are in the wrong room.' "
