Reviews

"..highly skilled and confident performers.. this was a production which felt rooted in circus history and respectful of its mystery and magic" - (King Pole magazine)

"..every fall, twirl or leap kept us that little bit more on the edge of our seat (with much audible gasping to prove it)." - (Australian Times)

"unfeigned avant-gardism" - (Time Out)

"Noir simply and quite magically distils one art form into another" - (The Guardian)

"An explosive gravity-defying array of aerial circus acts exploring untold doom and destruction ahead: entropic visions, ghostly entities, imploding stars, radioactive dust..You have been warned!...A truly transporting experience" - (Time Out London Critics' Choice).

"Noir is an extremely successful hour of theatre - fluid and engaging; an improbable combination pulled off" - (Sideshow Magazine)

"A dramatic thriller, paying homage to 40s cinema, Noir fuses physical theatre and aerial circus to tell the story of a detective, a blonde and vengeful gangsters...Prepare to be spellbound!" - (Time Out)

"Whereas in Chandler and Hammett, the poetry is all in the hard-boiled dialogue, here it's in the sinews of the performers, noir re-imagined as a series of silent gestures - detective fiction as choreography. Noir brilliantly bottles the genre without using a cell of film" - (The Guardian)
