Star Tribune Review of "Appétit," performed by Zenon Dance Company

The piece began in darkness with the sound of the dancers’ voices muttering softly, then more loudly.

“It’s mine,” they called. When the lights came on, the dancers could be seen choking and gasping, their sinewy bodies pulled by an inexplicable force from their stomachs. They rolled over one another with tight muscles and jerking limbs. Their power struggles led only to more suffering, with the dancers eventually crawling wretchedly on the ground.

The piece’s final moments, complete with menacing animal masks, were unsettling. Batten Bland revealed the worst excesses of human nature. Her raw denouncement of humanity’s base qualities held a particular resonance in the wake of the massacre three years ago, but it continued to feel prescient even now.
