Tickling the Dragon’s Tail

Infinite Monkeys—School of Contemporary Dancers

Deep in the desert, a brilliant scientist working on The Bomb to End All Wars meets his long forgotten childhood imaginary friend, and begins to grapple with the moral implications of his research. Taking advantage of vintage footage, music, and photographs displayed on a screen off the side of the stage, they weave together the grinding progress towards the dreaded, but seemingly inevitable conclusion.

The message is there, however the actors seemed a bit unprepared, and certain lines were overreacted to an uncomfortable degree. While the core of a very piercing show is there, the execution was just not.
