At first, this collaboratively created piece by Dog, a Theater Company, has the stink of MFA avant-gardism about it. The three actors make gestures that clearly derive from theater games, relate to one another in ways that suggest improvisations--and theoretical discussions--to which the audience wasn't invited. And there's a device involving projected words that seems to want to be innovatively cute. The smell never completely goes away, but it begins to matter less and less as the actors' chops, wit, physical training, and mutual trust take control. H.B Ward is particularly impressive during a long passage involving a large, framed piece of glass. He looks like the guy in the next cubicle at work, but moves any and every way he wants. Part of the Rhinoceros Theater Festival. --Tony Adler
