I Never Promised You a Rose Garden

From a young age we see the world through rose coloured glasses. While hypnotic and alluring, life’s misfortunes may permeate our once untarnished eyes. Ultimately, we are defined by our receptiveness to calamity, and allowing other colours to come into bloom may be the only way of coming to terms.

                    This was a fantastic performance. It has love, loss, anguish and grief: all of the characteristics for a great drama. But add to that beautifully choreographed dancers who seem to defy gravity itself. The dancers manage to evoke human emotion without a spoken word. You will be spellbound!

                    I Never Promised You a Rose Garden: a promise kept

                    For many people – and I’m one – dance is a foreign language. “I’m not going to that – I won’t understand it.” Or “I’ll see it, and probably enjoy it… but I won’t understand it.” Someone in this artistic team has tried to help – the program includes a show synopsis. But you won’t need it.

                    The dancers tell a series of intertwined stories. Using little more than their bodies and faces, they show us characters and choices and deep, sometimes destructive, emotions. And we understand – we get it with our heads, and I, for one, got it with my heart. All of the performers in this show are skilled and strong; Kris Grzella and Allexa Schabel, the male lead and his love interest, are riveting.

                    It is a joy to find a show this compelling and moving – that they’ve done it almost without words is a testament to the talent of this troupe. I Never Promised You a Rose Garden is a standout show in this year’s exceptionally strong lineup.
