Chunky Move’s, I Like This at the small Joyce Soho, was something like viewing a group of confused campers lost in a desert, attempting to plug their computers into a fictional black hole for directions.

Good material made for a fresh and juicy “super-skit”. The plot-- the backstage antics of making the piece itself—was styled through an almost Chaplinesque entanglement of wires, lights, chairs, and text. Blessedly bi-polar, in the confused minds of its insecure creators, there never seemed to be an end to the f**king thing.
Fortunately, the indecision was rehearsed to brilliance with split second timing, and a firm, formal understanding of theatrical pace and comic take.
I found this very natural group of five refreshing and without attitude.
