   "<...>the dance yearning, curving and coiling like arabesques from a Persian manuscript."
Clement Crisp, today's FT.

"<...>dancing a sequence of meditative coiling movements - as fluid as the scrawl of Arabic script that crosses the back wall."
Judith Mackrell, today's Guardian.

This could be a new competition, Bruce: a prize to find the next instance of this simile in a ballet review!

   Ha! That's pretty funny. There must be some secret society of dance critics that meet, coil, and scribble in Arabic.

Maybe if we watch for clues we'll finally understand what they're all talking about when they write their "informed" reviews.
