Really enjoyed that Cassandra - Q is my favourite, but many of the pictures are witty and inventive. I suspect that it was the dancers rather than the photographer who "choreographed" the shapes as they know the full spectrum of positions they can adopt. I bridled a little at the reporter's use of the word "contortionist", as pilobolus performers are very flexible dancers, not contortionists.

I've always had a soft spot for Pilobolus and Momix, but we only get to see the latter in the UK these days.
