I am a fan of Big Dance Theater’s work and last night’s performance at BAM was no exception. I am fascinated by the intersection of dance, theater and music. I especially enjoy the repeating gestures and movements of the choreography, and the way the spoken word, song, movement and characterization is completely woven together. The costuming and props were terrific and I loved how they were used in the piece by each of the performers. I also thought the use of technology was just right. Sometimes I see performances that rely too much on technology to carry the work, but this was not at all the case tonight. It enhanced the piece. I was surprised and delighted to find that Cynthia Hopkins was a member of the cast for this piece. I am also a fan of her work as well so that added to my enjoyment of the performance.
