A very short double bill of a dance film and performance about tampons. The first presented piece FRAG is a trio of short films shot around Montreal with a movement or dance element in them. It was cool to see Montreal locations integrated so well with dancer movements that were both subtle and at times a bit risky in a public place. These films were quite well shot, had great music and seemed very carefully put together.
The second piece was a humorous lesson on how to hide a tampon and other uses for it in life. This piece had a nice combination of film and live performance and saves its lack of content with a very light tone. Still the piece is so short that is hard to tell if there is any deeper point other than a quick laugh.
