Exponential also programmed choreographer Lisa Fagan’s Red Carrots, a dance-theatre piece that was the most completely delightful thing I saw in the festivals. It was dada lite, with dancers crawling around whispering things we couldn’t quite hear, throwing vegetables around, and doing monologues that were mostly suspicious commentaries on how everyone else around them was doing. It was a chopped-up four-woman portrait of a very familiar feeling: Does everyone else know what’s going on?

Appropriately, it was the last festival show I saw. Because does everyone else know what’s going on? Maybe I’ll figure it out next year.
