Short maybe, but very sweet to my eyes. Splendid in fact!

A couple of photos of the featured artistes...

2x2 was utterly mesmerising, and I'd happily pay good money to see either dancer again. The only piece I wasn't too keen on was Present Past, but that was down to my personal preferences rather than the actual performance, I felt the music was completely incidental to the choreography and it didn't seem to link up with the rhythm of the 2 pieces at all. Fang-Yi Sheu's control was extremely impressive, with not a single muscle shaking even in the most demanding poses.

 

I'd love to see Yuan Yuan Tuan in a full length classical ballet one day...
