What do you get when you cross ballet, Matthew Bourne, incredibly lithe ballet dancers, white underwear, and tongue-so-in-cheek visual puns? You get AWESOME that’s what you get!
Thanks to Sandra Schwab for the link and the quote that provided the title to the entry. For more on Matthew Bourne, his version of Swan Lake and this particular piece, “Spitfire,” this article explains much:
One of Bourne’s earliest pieces, Spitfire, is a dance for four men “modeled on the ballerinas’ pas de quatre-tutu thing,” which caused quite a stir in his homeland. Bourne customed the men not in dance outfits but in varied white underwear. “It was like those catalog ads with men posing very chummy together,” he adds.
Boy, oh boy, do I miss ballet now.
