|Description||“Entr’acte theatre are (sic) one of the most fascinating dramatic groups at work in Australia. From the time of their conception, they have developed an impressive reputation both locally and overseas as masters of corporeal theatre…..Entr’acte Theatre has long been associated with daring explorations on stage. While they are primarily Decroux based, the willingness to take intuitive leaps in developing movement and performance has pushed them beyond the teachings of the late 70s. A number of cultural exchanges with Indonesia has (sic) also influenced the Entr’acte theatre significantly, so that they now incorporate mask, costumes and most importantly new forms of movement into their performance…..(P/D) is a powerful piece, dynamic and contradictory, at one moment still, in the next fiery and chaotic. It contends with all the emotions in a manner that is potently instinctual, shared partly with the mind, but felt wholly in the belly….P/D is a paradox amalgamated, a meeting of the opposite strands of humanity within us all, striving for balance within extremes”. ICON.
