La Boutique

"On one level it is pure entertainment, an exhibition of physical skills and mask techniques. The speed and variety of image and event for only two performers constitute a virtuoso performance. Yet the whole intent is to investigate what lies beneath the superficial world of the boutique, the motives of those who seek its allure and the disintegration of the shallow facade in the face of forces which come, quite literally, from the other side of the mirror. Immaculate in its detail ... worth seeing twice - once to be amazed and amused and once to ponder its deeper significance."
