How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Very interesting production. The music and the austere choreography worked well to establish the mood. Camu's take on Caligula's paradoxical take on being an absolute power yet actually not having any power, presumably brought on by the death of his lover/sister, has still got me thinking. Very cerebral but worthwhile. The cast was great. They made this exciting which didn't have to be given the fact that the dialog is barely disguised philosophical discourse.
