Too Busy

The performers were competent at what they were doing but it felt like they were trying too hard and never achieved anything that felt original or inspired. This felt like a watered down version of some of the other aerial troupes and performances that have been around for a while. You can see that they are greatly influenced by Quixotic and are trying to emulate their style like a little sister putting on her siblings clothes and make-up. The fact that there was always so much going on stage never gave me a chance to see any single performance. It was very distracting, I never knew what I was suppose to be watching. The story line as performed seemed to tell a message of exclusion. The one character that was different and unique among the cast was literally shunned and outcast. To gain acceptance she had to give up the parts of her that did make her special. She found community only after giving herself away. Terrible message. Only after reading the brochure did I understand that was not the story they were trying to tell, but the way it played out for the audience was like watching a high school clique pick on the new girl for being different. There is potential and there is some raw talent in the cast. I enjoyed the silks solo, straps and the hoop duet. There is room for improvement once they find their own voice and perhaps some originality of their own.
