Milonga-All dancers, by Tristram Kenton

Being neither an avid follower nor a devotee of the arts I can’t find myself critiquing with confidence this evening’s show. I’ve neither the experience nor the knowledge of what a great dance performance should look like. What I will say is this:

For about the first half hour I wondered to myself if I’d be able to make my way through the remaining hour’s worth of performances. But as time went on the dances became increasingly interesting and all the more appealing . After another half hour they’d captured my full attention and at the very end with the last performance of the evening I found myself joining in the standing ovation not out of common courtesy but because I genuinely felt it was well deserved.

When thinking of how to describe the impact this show had on me what comes to mind are words some of which rarely ever cross my lips or even my mind for that matter. Enraptured, Bedazzled and Hypnotized are merely a few that cross this mind when I think of the passion displayed on the stage and the well thought out choreography. Comical is yet another when I think of the one performance which touched on slapstick. Cutting Edge registers in their use of film projection and the surfaces chosen for our viewing pleasure. Breathless is how I felt more than once; especially on the very last dance which had me fearing whiplash as two dancers made moves worthy of a slow mo replay.

This would be my fourth time to the NYC Center for a dance performance and I must say, this was definitely at the top of my list. I will be remembering this evening for quite some time. Thanks go to all involved.
