Beauty and the Beast
Is it a dance? Is it a show? Is it a play? Is it a band, a concert? Forget minimalism and everything you know about good taste. It is life and death. It is love. It’s a place where beauty meets beast in a world where everything is possible. Forget Madonna, Prince, Elvis, Beyoncé, Whitney and Britney. Halla and Amanda never needed their lastnames and now they take on the greatest mononymes in dance history and blow you away. You’ll want to lean forward and then back in your chair. You feel safe, but you know that you are part of something dangerous. They don’t do hatred and contempt, they use love as a weapon.
