[ reviews ]

200 lbs. of wax create a surreal world of lunar cycles reflecting the binding relationship between creation and destruction as two characters trade places--one emerging from a wax shell, the other plunging into a vat of molten wax.

"Probably the most incredible sight on any stage this year...it definitely pushes the envelope... Highly Recommended" - Chicago Sun-Times. "...breathtaking in its intertwined intelligence and emotional openness...an intriguing, smart, wholly accessible meditation on creative identity, power, transformation and sacrifice. Critic's Choice" - Chicago Reader
