I've seen "Vertiginous" several times and I wish more companies would do it. It has a sense of giddy momentum that is just "thrill"ing to experience. From my understanding, it's not quite like Forsythe's other works.

You don't like those tutus? I love them. They're modish, stylish and out of this world. Something new for the eyes.

Oh well, different strokes for different folks. For me they sort of wobble about and break up the flow of the dancers.

I don't like those tutus either, Stuart. I would imagine on fouettes or pique turns the dancers would look like tops...

But I think that's the idea, Maggie. I think the title even implies. They're supposed to be spinning, like tops.
