25. LET'S DO PAS DE DEUX!
Makati Cinema Square along Pasong Tamo has been my one and constant source of campy collectibles. These well-made plaster wall hangings in the shape of ballet dancers are perfect examples of high-end kitsch. As always, 1950s decoratives always came in pairs--for every prima ballerina, there is a matching danseur ( or primo ballerino?), sweet ain't it? A plain dull wall is sure to be enlivened and inspired by this masked couple's sinuous balletic poses. I am inspired myself! Shall we do don our tutu's and do our arabesques?
