Act I, entitled Satie Studs/Ogives Composite felt highly conceptual. Every moment was tightly choreographed and the formality of it did not allow for one’s own emotional input as a reaction to the piece. Seven dancers on stage: arms fly up and down, sculptural constructions, two dancers skitter across the stage. These moments are interspersed with dancers like puppets on a string; highly coordinated and hypnotic. Legs leading them across stage and moving into Pilates/yoga style Canine's Delight movements that seem to provide an aspirational need for some of the audience members to comment on. More robot-like angular movements, two dancers exit stage right and two more enter stage left. The Dada-esque links of the choreography become clearly articulated towards the end of Act I with leaps and jumps to the discordant Satie piano music. We are privy to a very ordered chaos on stage and Jacques Tati is brought to mind. The costumes designed by Stevie Stewart (who created costumes for Kylie Minogue’s KYLIEX2008 tour) and Michael Clark are no frills, revealing all aspects of these incredibl dancers' musculature.
