Creative and confusing with remarkable dancing and choreography!
The Cost of Living follows a handful of dancers in the UK: a young blonde man with a foul vocabulary, a middle-aged man with no legs who moves around by walking on his hands, a brunette woman forced to put up with the annoying young blonde man's antics, a dead-panned lanky fellow and his love interest, a young, exotic-looking, scantily clad hula hoop-er. With very strange and minimal dialogue, this motley group engage in various unique duets and ensemble dances.
I'd be lying if I said I understood the story that was being told or exactly what the point of it all was. What really struck me though was the dancing (go figure). The way the dancers interacted, despite their different shapes and sizes, really amazed me. For example the man with no legs does a duet with the brunette woman in a dance studio. They roll on the floor, climb over each other, share weight and counter-balance. It was so fluid and seemingly easy. The fact that the man had no legs wasn't an issue at all. I've seen a few videos on YouTube of handicapped people dancing in wheel chairs but I never gave much thought to how they would move without the wheel chair. This duet showed me that dancing in possible no matter what your physical It was inspiring!
