Ambitious, Enchanting, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Riveting

See it if You enjoy nature documentaries. I know that sounds like a strange "see it if" but it's true! Enjoyed Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind.

Don't see it if You dislike dance pieces that are in some respects, open to interpretation by the audience. Read more

Riveting, Thought-provoking, Intense, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if You love movement pieces esp butoh, beautiful physical storytelling, life and discovery and nature and spiritually. I thought it was divine

Don't see it if You don't like dance, movement, butoh. Physical storytelling without words.

June 18th, 2018
For a previous production

"Assumes the framework of Butoh and adds Western dance and mime to an evolving journey...Unexpectedly the movement quality shifts. Sharp, quick movement replaces the slow control...It is the play with the sound that seems to take over. Other vocalizations by the performers distract...'Shinka' is a journey undertaken by committed performers...A solid belief directs the action. though greater strength could be found by letting the movement speak for itself."
