Re: “Calling all critical first responders: Marin, Teker, Radin

"It’s the emotion that comes after the boredom passes that makes the Umwelt worth watching." Its at least arguable that the boredom hasn't passed. Neither has the irritation expressed in the Umwelt piece: it shows up again in what is said about people leaving. The impressive (better or worse) thing about these slice of life presentations is that they go on after the curtain falls. The audience has participated in a kind of cattle call, and are now actors in a continuation of the damned thing-thinking it to a fault. Agonizing, analyzing, simmering in the angst. We seem to have given up the luxury of simply enjoying something. Or I thought we had till I watched the audience go nuts for the Graham and Lubovitch pieces. Maybe there is hope that we can really bring down the curtain on Unwelt. Someday soon? Someday soon.

My comments above were about the piece Unwelt. And I disliked the "dance" not the dancers. I suspect they do the best they can with what they're given. God knows, it ain't much sometimes.

I applauded the cast for stopping. It must have been an agonizing piece to learn. It was certainly an agonizing piece to watch. It stank. I watched the rope for the last three hours.
