Description “Entr’acte.... 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... 3 Forms is the wittiest of all. A hyperactive cube, a regal pyramid and a delightfully pudgy sphere explore their own shapes and interact with each other. it is a wonderful exercise in abstract personality" Peta Koch, "Geometry in Motion"
