More Dance Ensemble Vocabulary
In the wake of the recent re-writing-of-the-book on DE code words, I make this recording for posterity:
[At the usual Fong Seng Nasi Lemak place.]
Taufik: ... so I was performing CPR on this guy for 45 minutes... you know how tiring that is... and then, so sad lah, I heard his ribs crack like five times...
[Appreciative gasps all round.]
June: But when do you need to do the kind when you hammer the chest with one fist?
Taufik: Like Jack Shepard in Lost? Actually we never really do that lah... [thinks] unless you're like Hamzah then you do like this... [does spot-on imitation of a Hamzah dance move in which right fist is trust downwards with something of a combination of a wiggle and a flourish].
Ali: Yeah, like, HAMZAH! WE NEED YOU TO ZAZO A PATIENT!
[well, the pictures aren't going to take themselves!]
