Ok, I'll try off the top of my head. Pamela first caught my attention by the careful visual choice of the performers: the well coiffed heads the all black berlinesque cabaret singer outfits and the obvious choice to confront the audience with the cultivated stalking linear strides. The silliness(gum chewing, glove or mitten exchanging, provocative poses) began as funny and then took on a shape of their own. They created their own story. I'm not quite sure where the dance phrase came in except I loved it and it may have provided physical relief. I definitely was impressed by the commitment to the rather rigid and considered movement. I would like to see more. Oh yeah, and rehearsal direct. ha ha ha . seriously.
