“It is during this section that the piece provides us with one of those rare moments of delighted laughter as a “baby elephant” scuttles (“bounces” might be a better word!) sideways and on her knees across the back of the stage, a big smile on her face. The audience laughed aloud and there were even a few ‘Ahs’.” – Peter Lathan British Theatre Guide May 2106 About Elephant Dances Choreography Dora Frankel
