Strong physical work, passionate movement. Beautiful moments. Traveling here from San Diego - a great group of actors/movers/creators. Don't miss this show!...

generally strong choreography was undermined by direction--dividing into five stories that are explained to the audience BEFOREHAND; that and the contrivance of having audience participate becomes a bit patronizing.
best to let the dance SPEAK FOR ITSELF - felt like the creators didn't trust it or the audience enough to "get it";
would have preferred it staged as one full evening piece with sections that connected...
the dance film was beautiful!!!!
music is really good!
costumes are a bit dated and tacky....

There were parts that spoke to me strongly about experiences in my own life
I especially loved the video part; it was scrumptious...

Five is a wonderful series of dance pieces by people who really care. Each of the dancers WANTS to be there and it shows in their performances. The show revolves around the story of 5 women and each of them is shown through a particular style of dance. The stories are never made clear, but that was not expected. The only part that became confusing was a video segment towards the end which really didn't seem to fit with the rest of the piece. If you like dancing, this is a good Fringe show to hit!...

One of the first things that I noticed right off the bat was Tsofia's passion. I can tell that she loves what she does and altogether that was a very welcoming vibe. The show was very interesting and mysterious. Which kept my level of suspension high. I felt like I was in a constant delivery of of unsolved puzzles with pieces that only I was left to figure out. This performance was amazing. I've seen it twice and so far, it's growin on me like a rapid fungus. Look, if you want to see something truly amazing then you should at least grant yourself the liberty of experiencing something you always knew existed.If you ask me, "Give it a whirl"...
