What I liked

The spare cardboard set removed the show from the space it was performed in. The great care in serious physical rehearsal was obvious, as every movement (from feats of strength and agility, to joyful dancing) was fluid and effortless.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

A celebration of the wonder and terror of being human. When all you’ve got left is each other, what to do but examine who you were.

There are a million little moments from this show that I’ll keep revisiting and savoring, like a nourishing stew. From physical moments like the two characters forming thrones for each other. To lines that went straight to the core of my heart, as though there was a pre-made slot for them.
