DROWNING BIRD, PLUMMETING FISH opened to a full house last night, the reviews are coming in, and they are very positive!
John Smythe (theatreview.co.nz) said:
"More a performance art installation than a play, Drowning Bird, Plummeting Fish evokes the 'consuming society'. It focuses not so much on what we consume as how we are consumed by ourselves, our expectations, the expectations of others, labels and judgements, the pressure to know, the desire to be known to know ... And the economy, of course."
"In all it is an engaging, compelling, provoking and confronting challenge to each of us relate to it as we choose, according to where we see ourselves - and each other - in this all-consuming world."
Charlotte Bradley, from Salient said:
"I'll leave you to decide whether it is gratuitous or grand, but I haven't genuinely enjoyed myself - in spite of myself - at the theatre so much before."
