NOT A PARTY TOO SOON

"The highlight was however was Not A Party Too Soon performed by seven dancers. A quirky, fun piece by Ashley Wright, Not A Party Too Soon showcased some of the year’s best dancers: on opening night, Nicholas Caldwell, Eugenie English, Jacinta Janik and Taite Williams all demonstrated technical prowess and personality."

I’ve been busy procrastinating all day.
It is way more chaotic than you might think.

Seconds don't hit you in the face
you can’t taste minutes
thus, it’s a slippery concept
Delicately compressed moments
with a limited edition of infinity
And so it seems
we are in the past.
A mere fraction of a second in the past 
perhaps but still,

it counts.
