Absorbing, Relevant, Great staging, Great acting, Clever

See it if The performers r unbelievable:strg dancing&acting w an interesting take on our current harsh reality & a movement toward a more hopeful one.

Don't see it if U expected a 60M lecture on "Free Will." If you need every element explained & don't like experimental theatre, skip this one. Read more

Intelligent, Quirky, Relevant, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you like performance art that includes dancing, narration, puppet people, and stories told in sketches by 6 talented actors with many props.

Don't see it if you are looking for a lot of serious wisdom sharing - this is not strictly a play and the messages are sometime crudely presented.

New York Theater

"This hour-long collage of dancing and diatribes… uses the stories told by the eminent artists of Ancient Greece to comment on violence and family and love in modern times – which are expressed by some eminent artists of the American Avant-Garde."
