HuffPost Arts' Haiku Reviews is a monthly feature where invited critics review exhibitions and performances in short form. Some will be in the traditional Haiku form of 5x7x5 syllables, others might be a sonnet and others might be more free-form. This month, George Heymont, Laurence Vittes and Peter Frank give their quick takes on performing and visual arts.

Is there an exhibition or performance that you think people should know about? Write your own "haiku" with a link and shine a light on something you think is noteworthy in the comments section below.

For years, Joe Goode has been creating haunting introspective dance dramas about contemporary culture. Not only do his dancers speak, they challenge audiences to think about their lives and the consequences of their decisions. In his newest piece, When We Fall Apart, Goode seeks to compare his own aging process with the sagging realities faced by his friends. Video of Goode wearing a series of pathetic wigs as he narrates stories of imploded dreams and diminished horizons creates a narrative path for his dancers as they explore the idealism of youth diminished by the sadness of deteriorating relationships and the sagging of one's increasingly decrepit body. The finale (in which Goode sits at a desk as a huge piece of scenery collapses around him) is a shocking testament to the inevitable fate that awaits each and every one of us.
