I'm struggling to describe the performance, which is a surprise, because I see so many plays and ballets and operas each year. But this isn't like the "classical" performances I usually see. It reminds me of Maureen's performance in the musical Rent, a sort of random staging with loosely connected stories and a recurring theme throughout, with gestural movement that works into a frenzy at the high point -
But was it good? I have no idea. I have no comparative basis for judgement, save for whether or not I was amused. And I was...puzzled, most of the time. Trying to understand what was going on, and why this story (of a stone in her gut that was growing?) had to be shared and how much was metaphorical or literal - it confused me, and in the end I just wasn't sure why the story was being shared. I didn't get it, and I didn't really care for it.
I don't know whether that makes me a critic or a philistine, but when I sorted through the images and the words, that was my end result: I don't like whatever this is.
