Press review

Anne Helgesen: Hurra (literally: Hooray), Ånd i hanske, Issue 3/4 1994:

"Behind these puppets, Barthold Halle lets the puppeteers say their lines with theatrical and deep sobriety. Whereas the puppets' looks and movements often say the direct opposite. The duplicity of the characters and the description of the hypocrisy in the environment is used at a maximum. The result is comical, and revealing."
