AUDIENCE REVIEW: "Where Shall I Send My Joys?" by FlyByNight Dance Theatre

"Where Shall I Send My Joys?" by FlyByNight Dance Theatre

Company:
FlyByNight Dance Theatre

Performance Date:
October 30, 2021

Have you ever seen this company/ before?
Tell us a bit about your history with this group/performer?

No, it was the first time. I was invited by one of the dancers, Cecilia Fontanesi.

 

What was your favorite moment(s)? What inspired you?

The dancing bits (as opposed to narrative).

 

Describe as plainly and specifically as you can what actually happened during this performance.
We are looking for non-judgmental reporting. No need for complete sentences. Phrases and word lists are fine. YOU CAN DESCRIBE : the artists, their activities, the movement, the qualities of movement, the music, the use of time, the use of space OR anything else you observed.

I noticed the high quality of movement technique, something particularly impressive in the heritage of Trisha Brown style. I noticed the joy of the dancers in performing, and almost envy them. Safety and respect, the embracing athmosphere.

 

The only thing I didn't like was in an emotional context: I felt pushed to participate at the end while I didn't want to.

 

Do any images, colors or feelings pop into your head when you think about this show?

Lightness and joy.

 

Would you like to see this performance / company again?
Would you recommend it to a friend? Why or why not?

Absolutely!

 

What would you like to have seen more of? Less of?

Less speaking / narrative.
