  1. I must live in the hinterlands, or something. My computer, purchased for $1000 two months ago, won't play your virtual-reality production(s). Oh well, on to the next thing.

  2. I keep having to reset the audio. Love the idea but not working well.

  3. Not my favorite of your multimedia pieces. Kinda glitchy.

  4. Visually beautiful, but can’t get the audio to work on my (new) IPad -frustrating!

  5. Beautiful! A reminder that we all need to dance a little in our day. I especially enjoyed that not one women wore high heels.

  6. UPDATE: IT TOOK A WHILE TO LOAD, BUT I'M FINALLY ABLE TO VIEW THE VIDEO WITH SOUND. THANKS; BEAUTIFUL SERIES.

  7. I watched the first two. Verdict: not so good. Decidedly subpar dancing combined with uninspired choreography (if it can be called that).

  8. Couldn't play it on my phone; glad I looked it up when I got home. I thought the pieces were clever and concise, each with its own emotional thought. Thanks!

  9. Fantastic! Keep 'em coming.

  10. Awful, disjointed camera work destroys the integrity of these performances. I don't want to look at a close-up of Julia Roberts' feet one moment, and her head the next. I want to see her entire body in motion, as I would in a theater. Toni Collette's epic writhing is similarly obscured by being deconstructed. I request a do-over in which the body beautiful in motion is the star, not the camera.

  11. thank you. so much. much needed for my eyes and my mind. ethan hawke is a national treasure. so is julia. and the rest of them. glenn close - wow, beautiful. and the korean dude - i'm going to watch your show and send the clip of you dancing to my korean parents so we can all be so proud that you are korean, because that's what we do. xoxo nytimes.

  12. John H., agreed. Perhaps in future it would be best to let the Year's Best Actors stick to acting and leave dancing to The Year's Best Dancers.

  13. Thank you for this! It melted my icy cold NYC heart today.

  14. Subpar. Self-conscious and dumb. Once again we are being asked to applaud mediocrity.

  15. Wonderful way to start my day! A grand example of why the arts need to be cherished and cultivated.
