|dancing on treadmills in Left, Right Left|
I woke them up at the intermission for yogurt and popcorn, and we returned for act II. This time both Alex and Ben stayed awake (but Duncan, who had back to back 'sleepovers' this weekend, was both out for the count AND snoring!)
We did spend plenty of time on the ride home discussing all four pieces. Ben said his favourite was the one where they were dancing on treadmills. Duncan was awake long enough to enjoy watching the dancers perform the first piece outside (like a kind of flashmob!)
It was interesting the part that followed, where the dancers lined up in groups and exposed themselves to one at a time to the audience. It was like the middle group (who started by lifting their shirts to expose their left rib cage) was saying "Look, we are all the same here". The group on the right were taking turns showing us how they balance. The group on the right was showing us how they all fall... and then it got more and more messy and complicated (with people mooning us, etc!) We agreed that we didn't know what it meant, but it was wild.

This is a ballet whose images will return to haunt.
