Description "...The Bauhaus imagination has been used as a starting point or visual reference for the group to develop an entirely new image.....
Entr'acte's work...is notable for its conceptual imagination, ability to use space, strong sense of form and shape...and its excellent design. It would put many of our more established groups to shame." Mary Emery, The Australian, Mon 19/9/1983.

"A profusion of ideas in design and movement, explored through inquiring minds and flexible bodies, makes Refractions an absorbing, enjoyable and stimulating presentation.
