Press review

Writer and date unknown, Klassekampen [Oslo]:
"This adventurous production has become an exciting meeting point for different artistic expressions and storytelling techniques. In use are dance, puppetry, masks, shadow theatre, 'ordinary' theatre in a nicely balanced interchange with many surprising effects. [...] Despite some technical flaws [...] this was an adventurous and different production. Magically beautiful in the poetic language of the dream."

Writer and date unknown, Verdens Gang/VG [Oslo]:
"It has become an exciting performance, very well worth seeing, as it appeals to both adults and children. [...] The effort these three collaborators have started is an important one."

Writer and date unknown, Arbeiderbladet [Oslo]:
"The most innovative part of the production was the use of shadow theatre, in a way reminiscent of the Indonesian tradition, wayang kulit, binding the actions together in an entertaining and actually pretty exciting way."
