"Maybe you weren't paying attention and then suddenly they're both making sounds and moving, and it's by turns lyrical and goofy and dangerous and sinuous and explosive and disciplined and something is happening at the far end of the room or something is happening under your chair, relationships forming and dissolving, and then it's over.” -Richard Butner
