Star Pine > Cadets

84 Cavaliers >Star>Cadets.

Cavaliers didn't have the technical skills back then, but the arrangement and placement gave the piece the time to build to the money shot. Take that how you will.

My take on the Meow Mix bit...

The show moves from classic political propaganda of the Cold War to the late capitalist blur between news, commercialism, and propaganda. The entire last scene is totally an Internet webpage scattered with pop up ads. In this stream of history, the Meow Mix takes us from the 'commercial jingles' to the 'my god the Internet is full of cat videos' stage along with the internet meme of Chairman Meow parodying/echoing the Cold War propaganda the show starts with.

If that's the case, a poster of the Chairman Meow meme would not be amiss. (I've not spotted one yet though).

Then again, I could be over reading the whole thing and they just threw it in because OMG PEOPLE LOVE CATS.

Glad to hear the news of the return to "Awakening" as the show title. Keep in mind that this was the name of the Alvin Ailey Dance Company performance that Hop saw this past New Year's Eve that featured the two pieces by John Mackey that are in the Cadets' show!

But the drill was awesome!
