Chaos/Absolute Zero is reviewed on Theatre is Easy by Sarah Weber.

"Derya Celikkol, is transformed into the queen, and there’s a sense of actual personalities on stage. Celikkol enters the stage with only a few new costume pieces, including a black choker and gloves. The queen seems to possess the other performers, turning them against Snow White (Stephanie Cha) for a time, all while exploring the behavior of particles through different stages of cooling."

Chaos is a series of vignettes drawing on non-linear systems, strange attractors and the butterfly effect; Absolute Zero blends the process of achieving a Bose-Einstein condensate with Snow White mythology."
