As "Two" ends, the house lights rising upon a smiling Staton, bowing before the capacity audience's applause, one thing is certain: The utter folly of having a film writer cover an evening of contemporary dance.This is true in "Two" but also the solo-cum-duo "Still," in which strips of light and shadow repackage the stage, and the form of soloist Dickson Mbi, to resemble a shifting bar code.In the gamelan-driven duet "Still Current," featuring Staton and Adam Kirkham, the lighting embraces both dancers until literally bifurcating the stage into two strips, each containing a lone dancer.When the eponymous number ended the show, the ensemble did not return to the stage for a final curtain call – as if concerned the audience expected them to extemporize another dance or two.BIPOD continues Saturday and Sunday with "Hibr" (Ink), a collaboration between Maqamat Dance Theater and Marcel Leemann Physical Dance Theater.
