The avant-garde Argentinian troupe responsible for De La Guarda came back with another of their wordless, acrobatic, gloriously mindless performance spectacles. Once again, the audience has to stand for the entire 70-min. show. This time they're herded around the room to boot, to accommodate the action mostly taking place above their heads: a white-suited businessman striding purposefully on a treadmill, bursting through cardboard barriers thrown in his way; water dancers cavorting in a wading pool enclosed in clear plastic that is lowered perilously close to the audience's head. Don't look for meaning; just soak in the sensory overload.
