A humorous romp through the classroom of a put-upon teacher and her unruly students, complete with desks, notebooks, bullies, teacher's pets, and gym class. Featuring projections by photographer Lydia Daniller.
"The setting is an elementary classroom school with small desks facing a projected blackboard, shadowy teacher
(Ann Berman) included. Stuart works the non-proscenium stage well. She deployed the dancers along invisible lanes,
both horizontally and laterally - in assembly lines, meditation poses, in gym. Those channeling attempts inevitably
break down into cheerful chaos when cheerleading lines explode, rhythmic clapping dies and notebooks become
projectiles. When the latecomer (Noel Plemmons) plops in like a rambunctious puppy, any hope for order is lost.
Spitballs fly, bodies tumble, and the class dolt ends in the corner creating her own little universe.
Plemmons anarchic counterpart is a delightful, little Miss Goody Two Shoes, Erin Okayama, who jetees and twirls through
the melees with a blissfully pasted on smile and an eagerness to please everybody."
