Review: The Yellow Wallpaper
Stephanie Mohr’s adaptation is a remarkable manifestation (no other word seems more apt) of the Charlotte Perkins Gilman short story The Yellow Wallpaper, an important realisation of a key feminist awakening. It’s good enough for you not to want it depicted in any other way.
Review: AFTER ALL
Weinachter is an interchangeable chameleon: not just a dancer, but a rare performer who can do it all! Her style and execution of ideas paints a beautiful memory of her idiosyncratic talents in exploring the beginning and end of life. Stunningly poignant.
Review: HIGH STEAKS
Important theatre, brave, daring - entertaining.
A heartfelt attempt to expose the oil giants in a futuristic setting.
Where's Lulu? Tricks and treats - A great combination of mime and acrobatics!
Review: Ghosts of the Near Future
An engaging combination of heroic journey, magic show, and story-telling about life and death. Ghosts of the Near Future took place in an atmospheric fog-filled amphitheater at noon on a sunny day. A home-made brew of great integrity, creativity and enjoyment.
Review: Some Other Place
Some Other Place - an exploration of where we are, where we came from, and where we're going...
Review: Little Wimmin
An adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic novel Little Women by all-female performance art collective Figs in Wigs

A Compelling and Heart Wrenching Explosion of Love
Review: Motherhood:(Un)speakable, (Un)spoken
Ninety seconds into this newly-revised one-woman play, Joanna Rosenfeld - emerging in a poke of fingers from a cagoule of brown paper - over-voices herself giving witness to tens of verbatim experiences we hear. This tells us the baby’s a parasite, sucks all your nutrients, calcium from your teeth for instance, causes injury, often permanent, can kill. This is - literally - epic interior theatre.
The fall of civilisation and a celebration of nature
Review: 4D Cinema
A historical and technological exploration of Marlene Dietrich, autobiography and live performance.
Review: The Excellence of Failure
Vinyl Catastrophe, Chris Sav, Andy Hoggarth, Lewis Klein, Mathilde Segonds and Clarisse Mathevet are all individually intriguing artists, who I would happily watch perform again.
Review: Song Conversation
"magical dreamscape of noise, sound and music fused with written and improvised text."
Review: Crème de la Crem
Deftly structured, evenly paced, informative and entertaining, Crème de la Crem is a must see for anyone who'd like a great funeral.
"performance art at its best "
The funeral of a daughter, on the side of Loch Lomond is carefully choreographed by the corpse whilst she is still living.
