"A study in the darkness and luminosity inherent in human interaction, and a glorious showcase of the sheer physical beauty and sublime technique of this company of 13 extraordinarily magnetic contemporary dancers, “Take” is nothing short of spellbinding."
"Synapse created one of the most exhilarating artistic displays I have ever witnessed upon a Chicago stage, and the gasps and commentary of other audience members during the performance proved that fact."
"...the cold, sumptuous drift of the piece quickly shifts into something more human as duets develop and one isolated, Kafka-esque dancer confronts the inexorable force of an inexplicable crowd.
