The whole show bristles with energy. Sat still on the stage their bodies can’t help but betray the incredible ways that they are able to move. They ripple like liquid rubber, able to transform into whatever creature they wish to become. So we get the fluttering of feathers as they imitate a strutting ostrich. Some highly convincing bullfighting and some highly impressive vogueing.
After these high energy dances, performed in silence, a fag break ensues, where a live radio is tuned. In this instance, this somewhat changed the mood as Boris Johnston was talking about preparations for rationing post Brexit. One of the men turns the dial, the other is trying to dance, but as soon as he starts to get into a song he is frustrated. This lasts for perhaps a touch too long, but as the next part of the show unfolds, this frustration is maybe all part of it.
