Muscle memory takes center stage at flawed 'Spaceholder Festival'

Those obscure objects of desire: Spaceholder Festival

Perhaps the evening's most intriguing element came with Max Wirsing, the company's lone male dancer, who donned silver sandals and paraded around while covered by a tablecloth. Later he repeated the gesture of closing the clasp around his ankle. It was clearly a movement that had entered his body. As for me, I was grateful when the last of this unearthed material — a single dancer — was blanketed by the dark falling onto the stage.
