Fringe Review: 4 Food Groups

I like food. I like sex. “4 Food Groups” by Pones, Inc. puts love and sex into a four sided box and spits water on it and chews very slowly….and….

OK, sorry, back to the review.

Sex is the topic and it gets a full and very daring treatment. Motion and elements of performance art mix in with this non-narrative piece that shows the contrasts we have within ourselves about our lovers and those we hope become our lovers.

The cast totally committed to the concept and went all the way with physical elements of the production. This is very non-traditional and includes many elements that intentionally keep the audience off kilter.

I was, however, left wanting more textual elements, more dialog to augment the physical displays. I also needed something to close out the piece other than the final textual portions that didn’t fit well with the rest of the show.
