Simple? Chanel-inspired? Stretchy? I love it!

We got to go see a dance show on Sunday. Our friend wrote a violin solo piece to which choreography was performed. The choreography was created by a woman My Guy used to accompany- she taught a modern dance class and he played djembe or whatever random hand drum he pulled out of his collection. So, we were a little biased about picking a favorite. Anyway, the whole show was incredibly interesting, the first piece was visually stimulating- coordinating but fractured parts performed by 8 dancers. Another piece with a smaller group (all dressed in cream- laces and flowing fabrics, it was awesome) did quite a lot of lifts and movement around one another, really complex movements and forms. And our friends' piece was a trio that made great use of lighting and staging to allow each performer a series of moments to spotlight their unique choreography and style of movement. I love when pieces work that way- cater to and highlight strengths without using them as a crutch. There's an article here about the whole show. (The review of Lydia is the one to look for!)

I love going to see dance. It's good for my soul. (And I think Rob has music-ed me out a little over the years)
