Crazy ass dancers...

I LOVE modern dance - ballet, too - so today Di and visited Jacob's Pillow - the Berkshire's premier summer dance forum. I had wanted to attend one of the "ticketed" performances of the Trey McIntyre Project - a program that includes the world premiere of Leatherwing Bat, with music by American folk artist, Peter Yarrow, of Peter, Paul and Mary, as well as a variety of other contemporary music - but at $58 per ticket we opted for the free early evening Inside/Outside show.

OH MY GOD... I pray that the little children who had to endure 45 minutes of dreadful dance and incoherent storyline will forgive their parents or grandparents for dragging them to this horrible post-apocalyptic SOMETHING...?!? The grounds of this dance school are gorgeous but this performance was so cliche bound and UGLY that it brought to mind this cartoon from a recent New Yorker...
(for those who can't read the cartoon it says: "Do you find it painful when I get funky?!")

Still, what's a vacation for but to explore a bit and take a few chances, yes? Tomorrow we are off to a farmer's market and Sunday to MassMocha - the region's premiere modern art museum. I can't wait!

Here's what I missed... great dancing at its best!

We are blessed with a freelance troupe of liturgical dancers here in the city, so our worship is occasionally brought into a new dimension with their presence.

Sorry your experience didn't work out this time, but there's always another performance!

I love good dance - and have seen some great stuff over the years. I am delighted to know you have access to wonderful dancers cuz they can make us aware on a whole new level.
