With trademark playfulness and wit, The Symptoms, Hungary’s premiere contemporary dance/theater company, ponders the critical questions of aging.  When will I lose my virginity?  Will I find work I love?  How do I balance work with parenthood? Do I have enough money to retire?  How long will I keep my looks?  Will I ever have sex again?

The Symptoms’ clear-eyed, kind-hearted response to our human vulnerabilities is poignant, funny and brave.  Don’t miss the American debut of this highly original troupe.
