|Description||"The company clearly places great importance on perfection, and Concerto made it obvious why they made such an impact in London - as they did on the opening night audience here. Mime and movement are transformed into visual theatrical poetry, images, and symbols woven together in elegant and eloquent concepts......
…This is, indeed, creative adventure for a mime company. While the images and the mime itself convey emotions and ideas very well, overall the work is still open enough for the viewer to translate quite freely. This is, perhaps, its biggest attraction.
The elements that make up the work come together cohesively - things like slides used in tandem with a giant drape in a striking, moving montage. The music, prompting the intellect and the motion, is well punctuated by the rhythms created but the performers.
The concept of harmony is well defined and explored by the time disharmony makes its entrance - a figure in black and quite Mad Max-ish.” Andrew L Urban, The Australian.
“…Time is slowed down by the elaborate, seductive mime-a precise display that is organic in its unity as well as expressing humour in its irony and whimsy…engages the audience by the skill of its presentation and its intriguing mystery.
Act two is simply mesmerising." Village Voice
