How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I like modern dance very much. This was pseudo intelligence. For the first 10 minutes or so, we watched a fuzzy video to over amplified music. Then the dancer went through 25 to 30 minutes of gyrations and flopping on the floor to a short Magnificat and then the Rite of Spring, again played at rock volume. He went through various costume changes from a long sheet over his head along with a diaper like garment and then finished by dancing naked to the thrill of the audience who cheered wildly. The ticket brought about 40 minutes of entertainment, no intermission. It really was enough and I'm glad that I paid Goldstar prices.
