“Take Me Home” was Fuego del Corazon’s second and last appearance, in which they supplied all the pelvis thrusts and lifts Thirteen otherwise lacked, by no fault of DOBC’s all-female company. “Thirteen” closed the show, with all 46 members of DOBC storming Robsham’s stage—landing U.S. troops on the beaches of Normandy probably took considerably less planning than this impressive feat. Thus was the spirit of Thirteen—it was unafraid to be large, technically daring, and seemingly limitless in its artistic bounds. Director Honor Flannery and assistant director Alex Lorditch left little to luck with Thirteen, their brave endeavor in eclectic dance.
