The performance, as well as the ArtsTalk! post-performance discussion were meaningful, lively experiences.
The dancers and choreography were pulsating, angst-ridden and playful all in one. If one were to blend the familiar, say, look of classical roman architecture with its massive columns, with the curve and fragility of the sway large swatches of fabric as a breeze blows through, you'd have a mixed mood of the evening's presentation. There was almost a sense of hide-and-seek that the choreography, as wonderfully interpreted and presented by the dancers, invited the audience to participate in.
As for the hall's choice of placing seats right at the foot of the stage, I was most disappointed. This should certainly be addressed by Goldstar.
