Enjoyed the pre talk.. gave us an overview and reactions of
audience to world premiere and the concept that in spite of no
intermission, it was designed for people to go in and out as they wished.. most people sat for almost 2 hours before exiting for a break or to leave.. 3 hours..a number of people permanently exited.
We stayed for the entire performance, I left only once to have a bite.
It was bold, brilliant and unique. The choreography and dancers were riveting.. as was the whole production.
