Thread Name: Morris joins the Dodo?
Subject: RE: Morris joins the Dodo?
True enough Ed.

A thousands years ago before the war it was not uncommon to see Country Dance "Demonstration" Teams. They demonstrated social dance to whoever. I think this is a rare event now. Social dance is just that. Is Morris anything other? Sometimes I think it is - old and strange? I hope so.

I don't think anybody has started a revival Britannia Coconut Dance side. Why not, pretty well everything else has been copied? I feel the same about Mumming and Souling. Antrobus Soulcakers are truly old and strange but those other plays with David Beckham, Darth Vador and George Bush just seem silly.

Cheers
