Inspired by the Age of Enlightenment, Random Dance's multi-sensory, multimedia work FAR features 10 incredible dancers in a project that confronts the distortions, sensuality and feeling of the 18th century -- all set against a cutting-edging computerized pin board comprised of 3,200 LED lights. At once physical and immediate yet intensely cerebral, FAR features a haunting original score by Ben Frost, a critically acclaimed Australian composer known for his post-classical electronic music. The show is created by award-winning British choreographer Wayne McGregor, hailed for his innovative approach to new technology and fast, articulate choreographic style. Learn More

I think it's safe to say that this performance could be rated PG-13, so don't bring your underage children and conservitive grandparents. Other than that the costumes were insane, each dance and song had a different mood and essence to it. Dancers were great and high energy. The cello player with the animal sound-making microphone was weird and awkward. It had some humor in it, and if you don't want the dancers to touch you, sit in the middle away from the isles.
