Experimental, Not for everyone, Poignant

See it if you see a lot of 'downtown" avant-garde-style theatre and can make allowances for low-budget trappings to allow a painful story to emerge

Don't see it if you are not a fan of the "Here Arts Center" particular brand of experimental theater Read more

Edgy, Ambitious, Great staging, Quirky

See it if enjoy avant-garde theatre and don't mind languages other than English being used.

Don't see it if you want a narrative plot or a flashy show.

"Lackluster though amiable...Much of it is in a showily offbeat mode that is arguably comprehensible only to its creators...Nothing is highly accomplished in terms of performance, and the narrative threads really don’t connect clearly, but there’s a warmhearted tone throughout. Philippi’s writing has a literary quality and succeeds at being vague and open to interpretation as it conveys the plot. Philippi’s direction is rather stilted and rarely achieves visual interest."

“Offers images and intriguing visual and aural juxtapositions, and lands 60 minutes later suggesting a journey of sorts, and loads of textual questions…Sections resonate but all the plot pieces don’t quite cohere…Philippi’s writing offers loads of possible meanings to most of the brief adventure. Choreographed moments are striking and worth the price of admission. The frame that holds the pieces together, however, feels jerry-rigged rather than emotionally true.”
