Description Reviewer's Opinion (Australian and New Zealand Theatre Record): "Nikki Heywood is addressing human lifestyles through an allegory that unfolds in movement and sound and might be deemed insect like - or at the very least non-human." From Performance Space database: "A monstrously engorged female body forms the central motif and starting point for this performance. All gestures and sounds relate to her. She is the Alpha and Omega, the queen, the all consuming orifice who dominates her all- singing, all-dancing chorus of skinny men, reminiscent of the frenzy of an insect hive."
