Born to be Alive
I can't decide how I feel about Myron Johnson's Ballet of the Dolls, "Born to be alive." The clips of the show shown in the video reminded me of one of my own middle school dance recitals. I realize that may be harsh statement, but I personally just can't find a good connection with Johnson's exhibit. I understand the show is supposed to be an almost autobiography of his experience in and of the disco era in the twin cities, but from what was demonstrated in the 3-minute egg clip the show looked immature. Not in content, but in underlying meaning and through presentation. I feel that if Johnson were to further develop the set/scene/cast/meaning he good really come up with some fantastic.
