Short Mean Lady packs a punch
I went to see Amanda Loulaki’s show at Danspace Project because she’s my friend, and I wanted to support her; you should go see it because it’s fantastic. Delirium, or that taste in my mouth is a striking, mature piece of dance exploring anxiety and fear performed with an earnestness that is never simpering – this is no made-for-tv movie about everyday heroes. Rather, these performers are strong and impressive, and as they struggle through torturous obstacles that never seem self-imposed, they ask us to “look longer,” for the reality of pain continues long after the movie blackout.
