READ WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY:
...much of the evening’s delight derived from SB’s cheerful willingness to tease and probe an array of ticklish cultural boundaries and ingrained sensibilities. These include dabbling, sometimes to hilarious excess, in misdemeanors such as nudity, profanity, lewd posturing and liberal politics. Most significant however was SB’s unerring instinct for combining serious artistic dance with popular entertainment...no other local group can approach SB when it comes to dancing unselfconsciously and joyfully on the narrow rope that divides high culture from mass spectacle.

I can promise you that this is no Swan Lake-Nutcracker-fluffy tutu kind of dance...[this] version of dance is guaranteed quirky, surprising and often, even, funny.

…jaw-dropping performances across the board and staggering beauty combined with a pleasing sense of playfulness…The production values are stunning and overall, the piece is confident, innovative and edgy.
