As the choreographer for Paradux, I have to be ruthless to guarantee the troupe’s performances reach the level of “art” instead of just a flock of ducks waddling around the stage. So when overweight ducks with no sense of rhythm (like the one above) attend try-outs, I send them packing. I’m sure some feelings have been hurt, but if they don’t have chops, they don’t have chops.
But other ducks arrive with special talents. One was able to high kick while hanging on the edge of the stage by only two claws (right). You don’t see that everyday! Click the image to see it larger.
