Video - Panta Rei Danseteater 'Lullaby'
Norwegian dance company Panta Rei Danseteater, late last year, conducted a little experiment whereby three dance makers created two pieces with the same name based on the same idea, featuring three male dancers and two musicians, to see what the outcome was.

Update: 02/09/10 A recording of the show is online for those of you inclined enough to listen. [ Iconoclasts on Radio 4 ]
It had to happen eventually. Some crazy person has invited our ever so slightly un-hinged Editor to appear on a live radio show debating the merits or otherwise of arts subsidy with some
damn fool person who would like to see all arts funding abolished! (Stop laughing at the back!)
nutter person in question is Stephen Pollard, Editor of the Jewish Chronicle and he will be making his case with a six minute speech before being mercilessly eviscerated politely debated by our man and two other people, the names of whom escape us at the time of writing.
Presumably the irony of presenting this argument on a publicly subsidised radio station has not escaped Mr Pollard.
When TheImp heard of Mr Pollard's idea he had to be tranquillised and confined to his cage/office for several days. We really wanted him to go instead but we couldn't get the necessary permits.
If you want to join in the bun fight then the programme, 'Iconoclasts', is on BBC Radio 4, tomorrow (September 1), at 8pm. If you don't have a radio then you can listen online via the BBC website but only if you are in the UK thanks to some damn fool copyright nonsense.
The show will also be available on the iPlayer for 10 days after it goes on the air.
