    That Relaxed Muscle thing...

    A Rock Star May Steal the Show
    ‘Who’s Zoo?’ by Michael Clark at the Whitney
    By GIA KOURLAS
    Published: April 6, 2012

    It’s been a week since the premiere of the British choreographer Michael Clark’s new work at the Whitney Biennial, but that hasn’t been enough time to turn “Who’s Zoo?” into a dance of substance. Though changes have been made, it’s still a patchwork job in the style of Merce Cunningham — but it must be granted that Mr. Clark knows how to amp it up.

    In the latest iteration of “Who’s Zoo?,” performed on Thursday afternoon at the Whitney Museum of American Art, with professionals alongside nondancers, the biggest improvement is live music: Relaxed Muscle, a two-member band featuring Jarvis Cocker (of Pulp) and Jason Buckle, perform four of the show’s six songs.

    With the addition of live music and a cult-of-personality approach — not only by the spectacularly louche Mr. Cocker, but also by Mr. Clark, who has given himself more cameos this time around — “Who’s Zoo?” is less of a dance than it ever was. Mr. Clark transforms it into a musical experience with movement.

    As a result, the six members of his company look more and more like backup dancers. Though the section is not new, the most poignant dance moment occurs when Mr. Clark inserts something like a flash mob in the middle of “Who’s Zoo?” For the work’s large contingent of amateur dancers, all wearing black, the simple, repetitive choreography set to Pulp’s “F.E.E.L.I.N.G.C.A.L.L.E.D.L.O.V.E.” includes a fist to the chest, an arm pointed straight ahead and down toward the floor and, finally, both hands behind the back.

    Charles Atlas, credited with the lighting, has added more projections that spell out some of the lyrics of “F.E.E.L.I.N.G.,” but reverses the letters to create a moving jumble against the back wall. It’s a little trippy; in a flash, the dancer Julie Cunningham swipes a question mark away.

    As the piece progresses, Mr. Clark insinuates himself more forcibly: at one point, he wields a cane, thrusting it against a curtain that borders a side window of the Whitney’s wide fourth-floor setting. But try as he might, Mr. Clark, bounding up and down the expanse of the stage like a hyperactive ringmaster, can’t begin to compete with the charisma of Mr. Cocker. (Really, the only person in the room who stood a chance was a low-key David Bowie, in the audience.)

    Mr. Cocker, in costume as his alter ego, Darren Spooner, has his face and hands blackened and wears a painted brown leather jacket, skeleton shirt and jeans, under which pointy red boots poke out. Aside from his voice, it is his dancing that draws you in: Mr. Cocker, a natural mover whose rhythm is bewilderingly lackadaisical yet full of darting undercurrents, performs slinky steps that stutter backward and forward while singing the Relaxed Muscle songs “The Heavy,” “Let It Ride,” “Beastmaster” and, as an encore, “B-Real.” (The set list is subject to change.)

    Like a mad Easter Bunny, he passed out candy and chocolates to puzzled, elderly audience members in the first row. Yes, thanks to Mr. Cocker, it was a weird afternoon. In this case, the music was the dance.

    This was probably one of the best things that's ever happened. A cool story, indeed.

    And congratulations to the NYT for their outstanding effort and unparalleled achievement, once again, in the art of reducing a magnificent spectacle to its most absolute mundane description.

    No predictions/wagers? This is Hardcore? Babies? Like a Friend? (which would probably be the best talk show performance ever) Anything aside from Common People and you'll eat your hat?

    I'm guessing Disco 2000 or Like a Friend, can't see any other tunes being played.

    And after reading that NYT articles, I can't keep thinking about the possibility of FEELING CALLED LOVE being played at one of the NYC shows, cannot wait for Tuesday and Wednesday!

    It's television, so something short. Babies, Disco 2000, or Mis-Shapes.

    Report from Fallon taping

    Just got back from the taping. They played "Common People" for the show (with an Asian violinist who looked familiar but I couldn't place her), then "Like a Friend" for the website. They sounded great. I was surprised by "Like a Friend", but I guess those of you saying people know the song here might have been correct. The people in the "band benches" (fans who stand behind the band while they play) didn't seem like they were familiar with the song though.

    Indeed Russell Senior has been transformed into a young asian girl. Jimmy Fallon's stage is smaller than my bathroom.

    I heard Russell won't be joining due to his fear of flying. Hasn't the man heard of Xanax?

    A live tweeter puts "Live Bed Show" after "Sorted", but the setlist itself lists it in the encore. Either way, it was played. Every song from Different Class except for "Monday Morning".
