My overall impression

Beautiful! Nikki Muller & Jason Rosario deftly combine lyric poetry with physical theatre, taking you into a Dystopian future where the last two people on earth explore the meaning of love and the nature of relationships. Nikki’s exquisite writing has hints of Pirandello, echoes of Beckett, and uses her wide-ranging literary and philosophical knowledge to present a script that is tight, engaging and thought-provoking.

The company’s ingenious use of the space lifts the production further, with a sparse, cardboard-box-floored set that contrasts the material poverty of the future world with the incredible wealth of the two characters’ minds, a kind of post-Eden state where they are simply called XX & XY.

‘Definition of Man’ deserves a Pick of the Fringe & I look forward to seeing this dynamic company as they continue to develop their exciting artistry.
