The first incarnation of Drastic-Classicism had a cast of seven dancers, a drummer and four guitarists. The opening three movements were performed and then, after an intermission, the same three movements were repeated in new costumes with everyone free to improvise on the material. For the revival, the repeat has been eliminated but some of the improvisation remains.

This is an excerpt from the 2nd movement of Drastic-Classicism performed by Armitage Gone! Dance at The Kitchen in NYC.
