How was your experience?
The first piece was an extravaganza as advertised (don't remember title). The second In the Night was lush and lovely. The dancing and emotions evoked by the dancers were both clear and true. The costumes here are also magical, supporting the mood of each pas de deux. In the premier of Borderlands, the program notes were really helpful. Otherwise I might have seen nothing more than a jumble of bodies. Knowing that this piece was about shapes, color and evoking painterly mood helped a lot in appreciating it.
