Tonight I went with a friend to see some dance theater by Shen Wei at Lincoln Center.
I’m not a connoisseur of modern dance, but Shen Wei impressed me.
After the third and final piece Shen Wei himself appeared on stage. He turned out to be a friendly, almost radiant looking Chinese man on sneakers.
My friend said: “I’m pretty sure that the female dancer with the short hair lives in my building.”

“You should ask her the next time you see her,” I said.
Shen Wei had made me happy.
