Description “Refractions, a presentation of corporeal mime, had to battle the brutal black space of the Edward Street Theatre. It says a great deal for the skills of Entr’acte that they managed to transcend their surroundings and create a magic which manipulated space and melted the division between man and object”,
Sue Gough, "Mime and play make much out of little", The Australian, July 10, 1986

"Zephyr, a solo by...Pierre Thibaudeau shows sheer poetry of movement in an exploration of flight and space..."
Peta Koch, "Geometry in Motion" The Courier-Mail, July 9, 1986
