The Vanishing Point
Awe inspiring spectacle on stilts
This article is from 2008.
The Vanishing Point is sheer delight. The stilt walkers, communicating to each other through some sort of primeval whale song, trace a pattern of evolution from dinosaur-like creatures and sexually charged tribal people to, briefly, dead-eyed office workers. Even on stilts, their floor work and gymnastic feats are lucid and nuanced, working with the lure of myth to inspire proper, Old Testament-style awe.
