Apparently it means writhing around, blind and half-naked, with your head in a coil of rope.Starring dancers Fabien Almakiewicz and Valenti Rocamora i Tora, along with three acrobats, Mathieu Antajan, Tim Behren and Florian Patschovsky, the performance opened with a pertinent question projected on the stage's white backdrop: "What does it mean to be modern?"A lone dancer – his face obscured by the whorls of a rope that descended from the ceiling to encase his head in a tangle of fiber – levered himself from the ground and began a graceful, doomed struggle for freedom. At times two performers would collide and cling, bodies intersecting in unlikely places, contorting one another into strange shapes to create a single beast, a shambling four-legged creature hopping ponderously across the stage.Arrayed in animal-like headdresses made of twisted rope, paper and spikes, adorned in ridiculous ensembles – a fur coat and sagging gray briefs, a smart pleated skirt and men's T-shirt – the five men stripped away the thin veneer of civilization to reveal the instinctive creatures beneath.
