Frank is a choreographer and performer in the avant-garde dance company, Le Danse a la Squirrel. Today, he is working through the opening scenes of his newest production, “Tail. Tail. Tail!!,” with the company’s most senior dancer, and once again is realizing how hard it is for humans to accurately portray the nuances of squirrel movement due to the weird way their feet move and their complete lack of a tail. But he’s worked with this particular dancer for so many years that it seems only fair to give her a shot at yet another lead role, even though every time she hops around and shakes her butt in pretense of having a tail, he can't help but feel like he’s watching his creation being destroyed.
