Must see, Intelligent, Profound, Intense, Great staging

See it if You love experimental theater, great productions, and dance.

Don't see it if It's long but worth it in my opinion. I can understand if length is too much. Most of the audience did stay though.

Thought-provoking, Intense, Intelligent, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if like dance-theatre, well written and staged shows told in a non-linear fashion. two actors/dancers worked really well together.

Don't see it if don't want 4-hour shows (though the time flew-by). want multiple person casts. Not a fan of dance-theatre.

Great dancing, Absorbing, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if you’d be intrigued by a dark sci-fi dance theater or are a fan of Crystal Pite’s and Dimitris Papaioannou’s work

Don't see it if you’d prefer more traditional structure or can’t stomach the nearly 4-hour run time (I was engaged throughout and it flew by) Read more

Great staging, Indulgent, Riveting, Virtuosic

See it if you want to see a marriage of concert dance and theater.

Don't see it if you can't do the run time or abstract movement pieces.

Long!, Great staging, Edgy, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if you like the challenge of experimental theater. Lots to think about but you have to be open to the ambiguity.

Don't see it if you like straightforward stories that aren't very complex and can't sit for a show that is almost four hours long.

Indulgent, Athletic, Repetitive, Ambitious

See it if You would like a near-four hour dance/theater performance with a lo-fi, sci-fi premise.

Indulgent, Overly long, Inventive, Great dancing, Disappointing

See it if You have a lot of patience and don't care about narrative, even in a four-hour-long dance piece.

Don't see it if You find indulgence exhausting. Read more

Exquisitely-beautiful, Mesmerizing, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you love avant garde performances, if you don't need a clear cut plot to follow, if you love expressive, interpretive dance

Don't see it if you prefer large and elaborate sets/ changes, if 4 hours is too long (if it's your thing, the time flies), if you don't like mostly dance
