Various Starter Set: New Dance And Music For The Camera

Just when you thought certain aspects of indie culture couldn't become more self-indulgent and pretentious, Kill Rock Stars releases Starter Set to prove you wrong and remind us there are no limits, unfortunately. Yes, this DVD is a collection of interpretive dance videos. No, not even attractive women with fabulous style can make interpretive dance interesting. Katie Eastburn of Young People and the Leg & Pants Dans Theeatre compiled Starter Set to present an identity for this emerging "movement," but let's hope it loses its momentum before catching on, because no one needs to see women who take themselves too seriously stepping about and gesticulating like second-rate ballerinas.
