  1. reminds me of something i saw at the dutch ballet in amsterdam a few years ago, where a woman wore a *dramatically* long dress and walked slowly off the stage to really beautiful music by philip glass. i can’t remember the name of the ballet, but it was incredibly moving to see. the ballet itself felt like sort-of a dream. this is a great post- thanks!
