“As a dancer, you spend all your life developing your body. ... All of a sudden you’re wearing puppets. As a dancer you know how you can leap and how you can turn, but suddenly you have an antelope on your head and one on each arm. It’s going to affect your center — you have to leap and carry your head differently.” 

- Garth Fagan
