And, in general, what is "provocative" and "thought-provoking" to you?

As to what is provocative (assuming you mean sexually), men in dancebelts just do not do it for me. In fact I do not remember the reviewer mentioning sexuality at all, although that was inferred. She said something about the men being stripped of societal niceties and desperately trying to communicate. Makes me wonder if maybe what was supposed to be provoked was not a sexual response at all.
This reminds me of a piece I saw a couple of years ago, a duet for two fully clothed men. There were some tender moments, but it was about relationships in general, not about sexuality specifically. It was reviewed as "the requisite homo-erotic duet". :-) I guess it is all in the eye of the beholder.

As for the dig about Russian ballet, I'd say it depends upon what the dance scene is like in Amarillo these days. If I were exposed to a constant diet of visiting troupes performing nothing but "Swan Lake" and "Nutcracker" I might get a little testy myself.
