The Anticipationist is a connoisseur of this particular pleasure: anticipation of both the affair itself & every discrete moment within the affair, every glance, meeting, kiss or embrace. The skin tingles & every nerve vibrates when the lover is in a state of anticipation.
In time, anticipation becomes remembering; that's the distance we travel when we fall in and out of love. But remembering doesn't give us the electric charge that we get from anticipation; remembering may give us a warm glow or merely cold comfort, but rarely the addictive thrill of anticipating. That must be why we keep coming back for more: no sooner has one cup of love been drained to the dregs than we jump back in the queue, hoping to still be in time for another serving.
This Midsummer's Night show offers more dance energy than my usual show: dancing is, itself, another tribute to the lure of anticipation & can be thought of as sex deferred to another time -- whatever is deferred is also anticipated.
