Reviews: Constellations, Quimeras

So, I'm not well but I'm still going out: seeing shows does not stress me out, it cheers me up. Best of the lot is Quimeras, a fusion of African drumming and dance with Flamenco music and dance that worked better than it had any right to. It was positively joyous (and was a great bday present for Ms dreamsewingmiko if I do say so myself). It is on until Saturday: don't miss it.

Another show I managed to see is Constellation, a show about relationships as seen through the eyes of different worldviews of physics. It's explained in my review in more details. It's a bit of a weepie but nice and short and pretty great.

I also saw, for free courtesy of the Almeida's blogger's program, a play about Robert Frost and, er, an English war poet. It was meh - good on poetry but not an enthralling play.

Do give Frost another chance. I think our educational system does him a real disservice--we're only shown the side that comes across as banal. I remember the day I figured out (on my own) that there were entire levels underneath the obvious ones. It was like standing on a frozen pond and all at once seeing fathoms of water underneath the ice. He's one of my favorites now.

I will need to re-read him free of the contaminating influence of my right wing high school senior English teacher.
