Michael Clark

So I finally have seen a Michael Clark dance performance.

I've been wanting to see one since I heard about him back in the early 90s and he worked with Leigh Bowery.

It exceeded any expectations I had - absolutely incredible. Mmm... runs until the 4th November at the Barbican.

The dance was thrilling, fresh and provocative.

3 words: GO SEE IT.

So jealous, Ziggy. I love dance, and I haven't been to a performance in ages. Wonder if he'll make it to our side of the pond.

Do you love Mark Morris? I adore his work, and I wish he were my best friend.

Dabich - he is lovely and such a beautiful dancer, but an even better choreographer.

Beth - I haven't seen Mark Morris Dance Group but know great things! If they make it over this side of the pond again I will go on your recommendation! Michael Clark is a little more daring from what I can gather, you might like it I think!

Butchie - you'd love it. There's naked ladies.

I've seen several Mark Morris dances -- most notably, The White Oak Project (which he develped in South Georgia) with Baryshnikov. Fabulous. Maybe we'll meet up in NYC one day for a MM performance.

Too far away. I'm busy anyway, pouting about not having anything to do for Halloween.
