The characters in the show, whose charm Fuller attributes to schadenfreude and sympathy in equal proportions, explore and perform 'untraditional masculinity'. The bunnies grimace contortedly in poses from high tragedy (fists clenched toward the heavens, etc.); the bodies of the ballet dancers in their Degas postures are forced into an appearance of clumsiness by the very precision of stances designed for bodies so different to their own. I hate to use the word poignancy, but such real sense of effort is communicated, of this Beckettian difficulty and inevitability of having a body, that it's hard not to. Also, there is a chase scene and a robot. No, seriously, there is.
