Quixotic Fusion

.
Dancing In The Street 15
The dance group in this post (and also Sunday's) is Quixotic Fusion from Kansas City. (Anyone who thinks KC is a cow town needs re-education. It's a very cool place.) The company's work includes modern dance, gymnastics, acrobatics and experimental theater, sometimes all at once. They were the big hit of this year's Dancing In The Street .

These photos were taken during their night performance, just before we went into the symphony hall. The top one reflects the feel of the whole performance. In the second, one of the dancers descends on a cable from the bell tower of a former church that now houses the St. Louis Black Repertory Theater.

Excellent group of shots Bob, favourite being the middle one, looks a little ethereal with the shadowy lady looking down.

I must admit. I stumble on your blog but you have some beautiful pictures here. The pictures of the gateway arch are also stunning. Thanks for showing.

The first shot is superb and I also like the fluid nature of the costume of the last photo, too.
