Two men did a running dance in close unison that involved many unpredictable changes of direction, with jumps and kicks thrown in. For a minute, as the music changed, they separated and seemed to have a conversation; then they returned to unison. Later two women repeated this duet.
Through it all, a corps of eight dancers moved in unison or in canon a measure or so apart, illustrating the dissonant threads of Bartók's music. Somehow, what I heard seemed more cohesive than what I saw.
