Description Joint work by the Paranormal Music Society and Entr'Acte Theatre. Rehearsed over 3 weeks, performed over 3 weekends, The Edge, Newtown (CV document).
"...meaningful buffoonery...clowning verges on slapstick without losing the sense of serious purpose which has always been their main characteristics.
The comic flair and musical insights of Romano Crivici, Blair Greenberg and Linsey Pollak, whose wind instruments include a clarinet watering can and bagpipe rubber gloves, came close to stealing the show.
But the fusion of the partnership and the strengths of the movement talents in Entr'acte - outstandingly those of Pierre Thibaudeau - made sure they didn't quite get away with it." SMH
