Eva uses an early decade of professional ballet and an era of Argentine tango to infuse Lucy Dancer with the charm of a dancer's world. Her I–was–there insight gives the audience a chance to share the experience of a nascent artist and performer, from the performer's point of view. Ballet is often considered a performing art, for audience consumption. Lucy Dancer shares what the performer's experience is, and what makes a performance worth watching.
