“…Entr’acte is the only guest company invited to perform outdoors with the Suzuki Company of Toga this year…” The Sydney Morning Herald.
“”I was able to attend the performances of Tadashi Suzuki’s open-air portrayal of “dionysis”, “the Memory room” by the Australian entr’acte theatre Group as well as Daniel Stein’s “Time Piece”. Each of these pieces can be said to hold a promise of future renewal from the performing arts…..
Among all these, the work of the Entr’acte theatre…drew my attention….TMR centres around the theme of human memory. It covers the world of memory lying at the root of the human existence - both visually and aurally. (It was performed in the open-air theatre on July 31 and August 1, 1990)…..It is a feat in itself that the elements of movement, sound, script and images have been combined together so well to successfully represent the conceptual theme of memory”.
