Dance in Stereo

Highlight of the day was Billy Cowie’s Stereoscopic Trilogy 2 – a series of dance pieces for real and 3D filmed performers, presented as diptychs or triptychs. Once the red & green specs were on it was actually quite difficult to tell the dancers apart. The pieces were at once beautiful, clever, slightly eerie and occasionally funny. 
Equally strange was Chinese director Lin Zhaohua’s talk at the Festival Theatre. His ‘heavy metal’ version of Coriolanus is currently on at the Playhouse (see my post of it in Beijing). Lin is a bit of a rascal: aimiably controversial, not that interested in talking about his art and even less in answering (the mildly silly) questions from the audience… but I like him.
