The Infirmary | Arts House | 2018
Chris Boyd | The Australian
“What’s truly remarkable is the way The Infirmary takes us into a time warping state in which we are barely conscious yet still receptive and thoughtful, in which we are completely disorientated but tenaciously focused.”
Myron My | Melbourne Arts
"Towards the end of the show, I catch my reflection in a mirror and I am shocked by what I see. I appear to be refreshed and rejuvenated. I seem happier and calmer than I have in a long time ... I feel alive. "
Robert Reid | Witness Performance
"Was this about death? Was this about care? Was this about process? It’s a remarkable experience. Like floating in a sensory deprivation tank, it’s not important what it’s about. A ride is about the ride."
What is most satisfying about Hotel Obscura is not the experience of any one or other room in particular but the rhythm & composition of the experience as a whole. There are no lulls, no blips. And nowhere does the confected mystery of the piece fade or falter. The work carries you smoothly in its shadowy dream across half the city and up 48 floors.
"Part play date, part confessional'', a kind of open invitation to share a moment with a stranger.
The Australian | Chris Boyd | An Appointment with J Dark | 2012
"If there is a sustaining theme in An Appointment with J Dark ... it's one of gender identity and the creation of faces to meet the faces that we meet. The temptation in performances such as these is to try to control or oversteer them. It was an immense privilege to be a part of this work."
