"For truth to tell, dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education: dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with pen- that one must learn how to write." Friedrich Nietzsche
"Lightning" by Felice Lesser Dance Theater
Wonderful show. The dancers were magnificent and the choreography was fantastic! The performance presented a great breadth of expression ranging from imposing issues currently facing the world to the timelessness of personal interaction.
Ms. Lesser devised some fascinating uses of pantomime as well. One piece explored the influence of the media on the public. For the closing, the the dancers formed a conveyer belt where they delivered one of the dancers to the edge of the stage as if she had become a manufactured product of media programming.
