"Using extensive video and a cast of five, the piece is overcrowded and scattershot. Intermittently, though, it is an incisive meditation on age and youth, the female body as an object of art and desire…Kohler is also experimenting with evoking a phenomenon known as A.S.M.R., a tingling relaxation...Still, it’s hard to imagine that a show as frenetic and unfocused as 'Mytho?' could bring about any sense of relaxation, let alone a heightened one.
