Finally, if a show strikes as being something special at 10am, then it definitely is. Contemporary? by Lithuanian trio Agne Ramanauskaite, Paulius Tamole and Mantas Stabacinskas at Space Triplex is a wonderfully selfironic look at contemporary dance. The threesome quickly established and then maintained a strong connection w i t h the audience as they discussed the process of dance-making and its cliche movements, phrases and costumes. Contemporary dance watchers w i l l recognise much of what they see, including one moment when Tamole is stopped mid-extended phrase just as he was "really getting into it," despite the fact no-one understood what he was trying to do or be. In amongst the debate is some fabulous dance, in particular a duet between Ramanauskaite and Stabacinskas and a fast moving, powerful, athletic duet for the two men. Great stuff indeed!
