"One Flat Thing, Reproduced" would have been more outstanding and fun had it been on the same program with something, say more 'traditional.'
Or if one were to go into the show with an idea of what to expect. When I saw "One Flat" performed by Forsythe company, it was in a program of similarly "grungy" works but it was still exciting to me because the dancers were really going for it and I was expecting exactly that kind of style from Forsythe. PNB, OTOH, in my mind, is still a ballet company first and I am still programmed to expect to see some "traditional" or "neoclassical" ballets on a program.
The audience on the night I went loved it though! So, maybe it's just us jaded folks that has an issue with it?
