Theatre is Easy
February 1st, 2017

"'The Tower of Babel' does not take up much space in the Bible, so it's a big feat to expand this tale to an alluring, 75-minute show that’s constantly dynamic...Going through the entire ensemble and creating a partner identity for all 12 duos makes this section seem a bit long. But what they all share is the exhilaration of finding a sense of partnership, a sense of belonging...It is Convergences Collective’s earnest effort to demonstrate the strength and perseverance of the human spirit."

"The stellar ensemble offers a fresh take on the story of the 'Tower of Babel,' utilizing acrobatics, movement theatre, and contemporary dance. The story is linear and specific, compelling to seasoned avant-garde audiences but direct enough for audiences less familiar with nonverbal pieces to follow...The play leaves the audience feeling hopeful and united, which proves timely for the current state of American culture and politics."
