Dated, Banal, Entertaining, Disappointing

See it if you know what you're getting into.

Don't see it if you don't like performance pieces.

Boring, Overrated

See it if You like the drums or weird visuals

Don't see it if You are expecting any type of storyline or any speaking or singing. This is pretty much a drum show with some odd visuals and blue men.

The more complicated answer is that it’s a kind of techno-psychedelic neo-vaudeville performance art that is also a satire of performance art.  Percussion, painting, videos, eating and spitting out, mime and audience participation are all involved."
