Not so sure that this performance is satisfying. Maybe simply because the subject is DARK. Choreography is key and paramount in this novel genre of dance theatre. Here, there were fine pieces of movement. But I grew weary of the in-your-face...

Interesting interpretation, but a bit overdone in my view. A little too advante guard and the dance a bit much. Worth seeing but not a typical play.

My friend and I enjoyed the play very much. We could feel all the emotions the actors expressed. Beautiful and talking decorations, music and lights. One word --- great!
