Arts & Ideas Diary, Day 7: Saturday, June 22
Spent the afternoon at the Shubert, watching a bunch of young male Brazilian dancers, Compagnie Kafig, cavort and spin and headstand and flip and dance divinely amid obstacles such as wooden legs, projection screens, drinking glasses and each other. The troupe wasn't without gimmickry, but these were thought-out, and thoughtful, choreographic works. Exhausting and exhilirating to watch, and just the right length with each of the two pieces clocking at a half-hour each, with a 15-minute intermission in between.
