A surprise addition was Anderson For Your Eyes Only, a splendid duet, originally performed for a hearing-impaired audience. Chantelle Pianetta and Bobby Briscoe, he a head taller than she, sensitively explored the give and take of an on/off relationship. Performed in silence, you heard their footfalls, the exertion of their breath, even the swish of their pants.
Anderson's Boléro closed the program. It's a good enough Spanish-flavored work for an over-used score. But perhaps it's one that choreographers just have to get out of their systems.
