Confusing, Indulgent, Overrated

See it if If you want a different kind of show about men and women throughout the years.

Don't see it if If you do not like avant garde theater that this show is.

Great staging, Entertaining, Intelligent, Riveting, Clever

See it if you appreciate diverse presentations with great lighting, music, choreography, sound and video by a youthful cast giving it their all.

Don't see it if you want a linear play. This is a series of scenes, with very few words, in which you watch, think, interpret and make your own conclusions.

“A singular experience. The eerie, nihilistic, Strindbergian performance hits the audience with a visceral and twisting silent terror...A world that stirs our most profound fears...The movement work is incredibly strong...There is clearly a linear structure to the production, but it is best experienced in waves. To live within each moment, and float or crash into the following, feels most appropriate for fully investing in the dystopian world so meticulously created. ”

“This masterpiece took three years to workshop in Los Angeles and was well worth the time spent. I love experimental theater when it’s created from ideas. This action/play is just that...This stimulating, gratifying and for some mystifying play is well worth your time. It speaks to our modern social dilemmas in silence, music and new forms of dance. It is a tragicomedy of philosophies and ideologies worthy of Charlie Chaplin. I hope there is more to come.”

"Impeccably rehearsed and performed, the one-hour presentation moves along at breakneck speed...Despite the grim visuals and situations, I found the production original, most entertaining and, is does it sound strange to say, fun? The Company performs with a total and endearing commitment to the work and very clearly makes many important and topical points in a non-threatening and entertaining way."
