Absorbing, Bizarre (in a good way), Enchanting, Clever, Delightful

See it if You want to experience something totally different and outside box. This is a lovely experience more than a show, refreshing, fun & clever.

Don't see it if You’re not willing to play along. Trust is a big part of this. If you can’t sit in the dark for an hour and touch/taste/listen pass on this. Read more

Absorbing, Clever

See it if You like being given different items to eat/drink wile you're blindfolded. Hear words in your ear, be touched by a feather, hear poems.

Don't see it if You don't like 45 minute experiences in the dark where you have to touch, taste, smell and hear. Everything but sight.

"The evening consists of several unconnected vignettes, which might not seem like coherent storytelling. But surrendering the narrative puts the "spectator" in the dark, allowing for a new kind of theatre, one with its own strange and beautiful logic."

"The point…is to enhance the senses that are normally neglected in a work of theater -- taste, touch and scent -- by asking us to eliminate one of the two senses on which most of us normally rely while attending a show -- the sense of sight."
