Elephants dressed in tutu on massive ballet shoes, together with pirouetting hippos in equal fashion are twirling and dancing around graciously and wild, disobeying the forces of gravity as they move (even with their heavy load of body weight) as if they are like dancing feathers; so elegantly and passionate in their expressionistic movements.
The audience (including me) obviously loves the performance, and why the hell not? It is an impressive sight! The only time something like this happened was in a Disney flop ‘Fantasia’ and that was just a cartoon & there were no elephants! This is wonderful, a real life spectacle of modern dance, elegant moves, pretty elephant and hippo faces smiling proudly at the audience when they perform their classy act.
