    I went to the Wednesday showing of this. It is a highly, highly ambitious idea and I was fascinated by the concept. All of the artists on stage were top notch, and I loved certain individual elements, but I did get the sense that there was little collaboration between them. The musicians stuck to a fairly limited style that didn’t change much depending on the poem; and the dancers seemed to be in a different realm as well. The best performances were with solo dancers. I think it would be interesting to have this same concept, but involve only a solo musician and a solo dancer (or dancers who take turns); that would, in my opinion, provide a little more clarity to the improvisations. Overall, I thought it was a great experiment and I am very glad to have gone!
