Don’t think about it

“Don’t think about it” – the title of the Rambert Dance Company’s second dance in yesterday’s programme at the Theatre Royal – was exactly what I had to try not to do on the train home accompanied by ten 9-10 year old girls and a headmistress.

Despite it being my favourite dance in the programme for its perceptive take on the culture of a lad’s night out, it was not really appropriate for this impressionable age group.  The Headmistress and I were suitably embarrassed, the girls understood more than they were letting on, two ladies in front of us didn’t come back after the interval, and the theatre manager was hugely apologetic and confessed that this piece had been put in the afternoon’s performance at short notice.

The programme describes it as “a world of mates, lads and comrades seeking release through movement… [and] sexual games” – the audience was not disappointed…
