How was your experience?
Imagine Elizabeth Streb, but with a safety harness (this is a favorable qualification...), in a nightclub setting, produced by Cirque de Soleil. I didn't see De La Guarda, but this rave-like event by the same creative team, audience moving around the high-ceilinged space under the direction of staff members, was a memorable "date night". High-speed treadmills, confetti, fog, mist sprayers, air-blast fans, very loud music, strobes and crash-through barrier effects combine for an unusual live show. Best effects: Two women suspended 20' up to run horizontally around a puffy mylar cyclorama that surrounds the audience, and a 25' x 50' transparent plastic wading pool lowered from 30' above you to 1' above you, while dancers create sound and patterns in the strobe-lighted puddles. Caveats: Standing only, for 65 minutes, $2 per item checking essential for coats and bags, frequent herding around semi-darkened room to clear moving scenery, possible viewing obstruction for shorter people and children, poor marking of exits may violate fire code. Licensed bar in lobby, wisely it's impossible to take drinks into theater. You may get damp or dusty, but I didn't. Union Square/14th Street Subway Station very close by.
