The PolitiModern-Dance News

Local and national politics reinterpreted into modern dance!

For some politics is a riveting to watch, what with all the backstabbing, political wrangling and inter-party shenanigans. Others, especially the younger contingent of society see it as a bunch of caucasian middle aged males who are way out of touch with 'the people' and their petty arguments that happen to be broadcasted on TV a lot.

What would make politics more interesting to the latter contingent would be a team of dancers getting the political news as it comes in and reinterpreting it as a modern dance to be broadcasted alongside the more conventional form of news delivery.

Of course, it would have to be seen for bias and unfair reporting like other forms of media, but this would be interesting to see.

       I would like this. The news from Iraq as expressed by a troupe of lithe, twirling dancers, flinging themselves against a brick wall to represent the latest suicide attack. +

       "Ooh, look at that! The Bank of England has reduced the base rate by 0.25%! - Oh no, wait ... Damn this interpretive dance! - small earthquake in Chile, few dead"

       Does this remind anyone else of Nixon in China? +
