"Sanjay Saverimuttu’s And Don’t Talk About It was an exciting expression of what Mr. Curran described as “toxic masculinity,” the theme of Fight Club boiled down to a visceral thumbnail. Eight male dancers clad in skirts maneuver forward in a tight skirmish line, and the interactions chart a trajectory of conflict resulting in a tragedy that doesn’t just call behavioral conventions for men into question but condemns them. Following in the tradition of Troy Games, but with a distinct lack of humor, it is a severe and powerful indictment." -Keith Waits (Arts Louisville)
