ニューヨークタイムズ批評

オープニングの日に,ニューヨークタイムズの批評家がきていたと聞いた。
さてさてどうなるか?

そして今朝出ました。

Muna Tseng shows an admirable ability to build a theatrical universe. A revival of her 1988 “Water Water” shows a delightfully poker-faced group of six Asian women, all dressed in Maoist indigo pants and tunics and carrying glasses of water. To music by Mike Vargas, they pour from one glass to the other in carefully choreographed combinations, their movements as neat and clear as those of a tea ceremony, their expressions as comic-book impassive or exaggerated as those of figures in a Tintin adventure.

Is Ms. Tseng commenting on stereotypes about China, about Asian women, about social conditioning? Perhaps — and she knows how to make a nice dance too.
