It’s back after twenty years! Symphonie Fantastique is a theatrical abstraction to the music of Berlioz using all underwater puppetry. Sounds interesting? Well it’s not interesting, it’s enthralling. It’s transportation. It’s theater in the form of food for your mind, vitamins for your spirit and a happy pill for your soul. If you have not yet experienced it there are only two words I have for you.
It is only playing for a short while longer. Fly here if you have to. It’s that good. If you are an artist of any kind you will find a renewed enthusiasm in creating. If you are a dancer you will want to move in a new way. If you are a garbage truck driver who quit school in Jr, High, you will “freakin’ love this shit!” Honestly – this is very powerful abstraction that sends your mind to a place where nobody else’s can go. It’s personal. Warning : If you are an overly emotional lover of beauty itself like me – THERE WILL BE SILENT TEARS.
Please go and see Symphonie Fantastique by Basil Twist. It’s as good as Mummenschanz on Broadway. OKAY! There it is! I said it!

Mart’s star studded memories were makin’ me say, “whaaaaa?” quite a bit…luckily I was alone. It’s truly inspiring and smart. I’m only about eight years late with watching this one – good thing it’s timeless. Have you seen it? If not I really think you should. Sal Mineo hits the screen in a bathing suit for a hot second to boot = Essential doc watching.
