I just went to this show last Friday June/17/2016 and I have to say the "second part of the beginning of the show": It was simply Amazing" You must see it. ( Perhaps... they might have diff performers for every date, not sure)

The program was well-balanced with strong, fluid dancers performing works by two local choreographers. The Broadway Performance Hall is one of my favorite venues. Sight-lines are excellent from anywhere the house, and the theatre is a...continued

We saw T42 and the best partner dancing we have seen in some time. What a delight that deep, meaningful, and originative can be so entertaining. We sat perched on our seats in full reception mode, laughing...then we went home and discussed how...continued

The three of us were very disappointed in this "performance", left after 30 mins, but should have gone after 5. Still were hoping to see some dancers, but to no avail. Whatever went on stage was just an appalling attempt to do some gymnastics on...continued

One of the 4 dance performances was good; it was the long one with 5 dancers. They seemed more experienced and fluid, yet many of their moves were repetitive. I give them all credit for working hard and putting on the show, so perhaps it was the...continued

The day we went, the dancing was mostly bizarre, somewhere between a bad dream and an epileptic fit. We left at the intermission.

I was not ready for the dystopian theme by Sapphire; grim. Beautifully executed however (dry ice stage effects detracted somewhat from the composition- my personal opinion)

Wade Madsen performance was totally engaging for me, while my friend felt Khambatta was food for the soul.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE dance and the SECOND piece by Spectrum was truly gorgeous, but the first piece by ??? was so mind numbingly, self indulgent and improvisational and much, much too long and boring and non-innovative and repetitive and...continued

We were forced to leave in the middle of the second piece because the artist who was performing theatre, not dance, proceeded to strip down to his birthday suit. There were three teenage girls in the audience who got up and ran out immediately. ...continued

The first act was an abstract form of dance, and was very tough to understand. I heard a few whispers on this from other people as well. The second act was a one-person dance (?). I don't understand how this could be classified as dance, as there...continued

Thought it was a great show. I took my four daughters ranging from ages 4-10. While there was nudity it was tactful and not inappropriate. My girls and I loved it and would go back again. The performers interacted with the audience throughout...continued
