lunar sea

We saw the MOMIX show "Lunar Sea" a few nights ago. It is such a visually striking dance that it is almost distracting. We kept thinking "how did they *do* that?!!!" It turns out, a dozen incredibly strong, improbably flexible humans, wearing costumes that highlight some limbs and hide others, can make people appear to float or separate or recombine in truly marvelous ways. Check out their site, at the above link, but know that the best pieces/moves are not pictured on the web. We recommend it.

I haven't been to a lot of dance concerts--maybe a dozen, all told, from the Nutcracker to Baryshnikov to modern-dance student recitals--but I have absolutely *loved* every one.
