REVIEWS
 

Howard Loxton, The British Theatre Guide, 2009

"It is a relief to say that I enjoyed this version, performed by silent actor/dancers and sung by offstage voices... Director Alexander Medem certainly gets over the problem of singing teacups. Medem and movement director Shona Morris present objects and animals in human form - an arm angled like a spout to suggest a teapot, for instance. A cat and a scurrying squirrel are easily identified by their movement – an enjoyable evening and colourful costumes, almost non-stop movement (no static arias in this show!) combine with the sincerity of the performers to hold the attention of the youngsters in the audience."
