Directed by Jude Anderson as part of the 2008 Castlemaine State Festival
Miss Friday's 50/50 dance class for all the world and her partner we explore the finer art of invitation, rejection, seduction and dismissal. Friday’s dance class has been requested as a lead up to an important ball. Since the twist, most people have lost techniques for dancing with a partner; how to invite someone to dance; how to gracefully decline an invitation (be diplomatic in refusal) or withstand a rejection (retain dignity in the face of humiliation and defeat). So Friday is called upon to reverse the trend and return the ball to its grand status of a place of collective grace and social finesse by teaching ballroom dancing technique.
