Press coverage

Writer and date unknown, Møre- og Romsdals Budstikke:

"The spry troupe gets their interpretation of Jonas Hassen Khemiri's highly contemporary satire on language and attitudes going."

Writer and date unknown, Klassekampen:

"Invasion revolves around one topic, the hunt for Abulkasem. For all of a sudden Abulkasem appears everywhere, in the white man's imagination and horror visions. He doesn't really exist, but becomes the symbol of everything that is unknown and dangerous (...) a rare theatre experience."
