Inuck Muck

fF/BF ([formerly] Flatmate/Best Friend) & I went to see 'Inuk2' at the Arts Centre on Saturday, a piece of contemporary dance choreographed by Meryl Tankard, currently Director of the Sydney Dance Company.

We were both really excited about seeing some contemporary Australian dance, however, we were unfortunately bitterly disappointed.

The piece was incoherent, disjointed and frankly, boring.

Personally I think Tankard knew this before the show was even performed, given the gimmicky tricks she threw in such as dancers sliding across huge plastic sheets with water poured all over them. Puh-lease.

Jill Sykes wrote more eloquently about the shows failings than I ever could:


C'mon Tankard - if you're going to criticise 'So You Think You Can Dance' then at least have something to back up your words with. Michael Clark - please move to Melbourne!
