Banquet for Bees | Secret Hotel & Triage| Ebeltoft & Aarhus Denmark | 2020

Kirsten Dahl | www.teateravisen.dk

The performance illuminates the life of bees using unpredictable elements which create excitement and give life to the event. Banquet for Bees requires the full attention and participation of the audience which focuses on everything that has to do with the little winged insect: beeswax, flowers, nectar and honey.  A work where factual information is perfectly combined with all things bodily and sensual. 

 

i can't believe we're still having this conversatation (#metoo) | Wonderland Festival Italy | 2019

Marco Cillis  | Brescia Italy 

“I took part in an immersive theater experience and I wanted it to last at least another two hours. Such strong texts, at times lyrical, at others deeply ironic, staged by Triage with seven talented actors who decline some of the possible female universes. With the strength of the female gaze that nails and interrogates you. It must be seen."

The Infirmary | Arts House Melbourne | 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."

Hotel Obscura | Arts House & Festival of Live Art | Melbourne | 2016

Andrew Fuhrmann | RealTime 

"What is most satisfying about Hotel Obscura is not the experience of any one or other room in particular but the rhythm and 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."

An Appointment with J Dark | Arts House Melbourne | 2012

Chris Boyd | The Australian | An Appointment with J Dark

"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 them. It was an immense privilege to be a part of this work." 

Liza Power | The Age | An Appointment with J Dark

"Part play date, part confessional, a kind of open invitation to share a series of unrestrained moments with a stranger."

Varia Karipoff | RealTime | An Appointment with J Dark 

"What makes us unique? Everything is up for analysis; beliefs and desires are turned over and need to be backed up." 

 

Strange Passions | Hebbel HAU WAU Berlin | 2011

Elizabeth Federer | Berlin Art Link

"The event encourages the audience to feast on words and on one another’s presence– and to trust that you can create your own intimacy."

 

Once at In-Habit Festival | Abbotsford Convent Melbourne | 2010

Barry Laing | Real Time 

"Once works ‘in’ the participants. Each stranger becomes the site at which a kind of alchemical fusion of projection & introspection lifts itself into consciousness. The work functions as a hiatus, a pause by means of which to see and experience another, to feel habitual avoidance, looking and being looked at, to sense movement towards and away from each other and all of the electricity, e-motion, ethics and responsibility of that…just once."
