|Danse á Grande Vitesse|
There was Balanchine's Serenade - sublime music and lovely Sarah Lamb dancing. (Here's a clip from another company.)
There was Liam Scarlett's Sweet Violets, about Walter Sickert and street girls and Jack the Ripper ... Didn't do it for me, the story is too convoluted and messy, but the Bedford Music Hall set was fabulous.
And then there was DGV:Danse à Grande Vitesse which was the reason I'd booked. I've been wanting to see this for ages ...
And it was fast and exhilarating and full of verve and even better than I'd hoped. And worth the ticket money for this alone. In the silence at the end, you could hear the dancers' great gasping breaths. I wish I could wind back the clock to lunchtime and see it again.
