Nervous faces, bodies wrapped in bathrobes, luminous paint daubed on hands: the Balkowski Exercise is about to begin.

Trager hits the lights and the music, robes flump to the floor and slowly but surely simple, glowing hand-shapes become multi-coloured trails as bodies bump and fingers find their way.

The music stops, seconds later the lights come up on a group of flushed people, babbling excitedly, not all wearing the same robe they started with.

No one notices Dan and Casey smeared faces, each only with one colour.

Probably just as well.
