Like watching a microcosm of New York over a ten-minute dance based around Ravel’s “Bolero.” Performers walked across the stage (one even had a poodle as part of his costume) and gyrated freely. At the very end, all of them lifted their touch-screen cellphones, a ubiquitous view in any large city, a great ending for a very satisfying evening
