This is by far my favorite show at the Fringe Festival this year. It's nature completely allows each audience member to take away whatever he/she wants from it. The choreography and music are absolutely beautiful, and I can't even begin to imagine the creative process for this show! I really hope it gets extended - I'd see it a hundred times over. It's one of those shows that, no matter how many times you see it, you will always find something new. It goes home with you, just as all amazing shows should.... full review

I have no idea what I just watched, but I don't care. I was mesmerized. I don't actually like ballet, but I could not look away. I was swept up by emotions I did not understand and by the lyrical athleticism of the dancers. A moving (if slightly confusing) time.... full review

This beautiful movement-dance piece directed by Sam Szabo and Samantha Shay, is wonderfully inventive and stunning. The ensemble of eight moves with great control and dexterity and have expressive and engaging facial expressions. Although there’s not much of a story line here (and when you think you have some sort of a narrative it changes pace completely), the sheer beauty of the piece washes over you and is incredibly interesting to watch. Again, the ensemble’s focus and dedication must be praised. The use of flashlights as the bulk of the lighting creates a sensational effect of being lost in the forest. With the first half danced around books, I kept imagining that these were young kids who had never seen a book before and were being ... full review

“In The Fog” A stunningly beautiful piece directed by Samantha Shay inspired by Yuri Norstein’s animated film “Hedgehog in the Fog”. From the first moment they had me, and if they hadn't ended the show I'd still be sitting there. A feast for the eye. ... full review

After watching the play, I watched the film and I see the inspiration, but I also see where Source Material went off in their own direction – you kind of have to. The cartoon is about a hedgehog drowning in a body of water (obviously it’s about much more than that but you get my point). To me the piece was about breaking through confusion – breaking through the fog of life – breaking apart – being pulled in different directions: which makes sense coming out of the perspective of post-adolescence.... full review

This is what the magic of theatre is all about! It's a gorgeous piece of theatre with beautiful dancing, magical staging, and imaginative storytelling. Although the story telling is much more visceral than it is concrete in anyway (I'm not too sure what the play is about), Into The Fog is very much worth the trip. Loved every minute of it!... full review
