In regard to Judith Mackrell's (Guardian) mention of Akram Khan's Olympics presence I would like to suggest that if anyone could put 'celestial explosion' on the map give Carlos Acosta performing "Russell Maliphant II" a try. Then maybe add Sylvie Guillem's "Bolero".


By the way, is Dance an Olympics event? If not, maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea.
