Home for the Holidays 

So it's true. I'm getting a little tired of all the dancing. But Deborah Hay's performance at Machineworks was a treat. Wally Cardona, Ros Warby and Deborah presented what is clearly one of the most thoughtful, and yes, not as accessible, dance events of the festival in three solo performances.

Now, this performance is undoubtedly structured as it is for a reason, but I couldn't help but redirect it in my head.

Imagine, if you will, what would happen if we put a little tree and a coffee table with a punch bowl full something to drink on the stage. Then picture all three dancers performing their dances together. The result would look something like my family on Christmas day after way too much booze. Now that's contemporary art.
