Videos for Friday Aug. 31

After watching the videos, go back to the Mike Vargas article.  Pick out two of his "86 Aspects" that feel particularly relevant to the video you found most compelling and come prepared to talk about what you see in the choreography using these aspects as lenses for looking at the work.
