Here's what I noticed last night:
- Opposite-sex partnering that was heavy on romantic longing and bittersweet partings.
- Same-sex partnering that, albeit in very different ways, grappled with questions of doubling and the connections between self and other.
- A noticeable emphasis on gestural vocabularies that were variously conspiratorial, confessional, and confrontational.
- Ensemble work that mixed serial unison in tight bodily massings with repetition of random individual phrasings scattered about the stage.
- Some startling multi-directional lighting effects, including diagonal corridors, dappled washes from the side, and one rock star back light.
- Double endings: once with music, once without.
