Description "... Entr’acte, visually thrilled and dazzled Hobart audiences... the most absorbing performance event of 1985... The performance was a profusion of ideas in design and movement and a celebration of the human spirit through an exploration of the human mind. Mime and movement were transformed into visual theatrical poetry and images and symbols were woven together in elegant and eloquent concepts. The four performers moved with grace and perfection, contrasting rigid and sinuous movements which, when complemented by the spectacular lighting, were capable of immense emblematic power..." Rachel Kerr, The Mercury, Hobart, 1985
