"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

MeenMoves / Sameena Mitta presents "alternative (f)Acts"

MeenMoves / Sameena Mitta presents "alternative (f)Acts"

Freeform Review:

Sameena Mitta's alternative (f)Acts is silly.  It's wonderfully crafted.  It has an impressive economy of means (a design that succeeds because the revisited movement vocabulary is so fun to watch repeatedly).  The movement material is challenging to dance.  The dancing is beautiful, lively, energetic and effortless.  There's all manner of subversion.  The video, text, and live music are as sly and playful as the dancing.  Everything's tossed together with charming wit and verve.
