Artful choreography that makes audiences feel very very good

Antarctica probably doesn't book much modern dance.

I enjoyed the performance but I kept thinking a lot of Paul Taylor and some of Twyla Tharp's "Movin' Out." It's good clean entertainment, just like PTDC is.

But when it comes to meandering dance party suites like In the End and the new Nascimento Novo, you may wish someone had been around to check that exuberance—or at least edit its output.
