Mistaken Identity

This report notwithstanding,

Narrative ambiguity also hurts the evening’s opening work, “Mediate,” set to the music of INXS. About two-thirds of the way through, all six dancers undress to their underwear for reasons that are not clear. The piece ends oddly with a duet between Elizabeth Towles and James Joyner, their underwear hardly flattering their movement.

Rest assured that I was not in Denver last night dancing in my underwear to INXS tunes.

    Yeah, right. I plugged ‘James Joyner’ into google, and you were the only one that popped up on the first two pages of hits. Denver ain’t that far from Alexandria these days. (And this is a pretty unkind cut: “their underwear hardly flattering their movement” — I’d deny, too.)

    Thank God.

    And here I was thinking that you’d decided to launch OTB Vlog with a bang!
