Reviews:

 

Maddy & The Invisble Band of Groovers is a gentle and enchanting piece of work incorporating storytelling, puppetry and song. The show contained strong performances from all four actors, Simon Startin, Karina Jones, Molly Lambert and Robin Paley Yorke.

 

Invisible Flash are an innovative new theatre company whose aim is to ‘activate audience’s imaginations, through a bold exploration of the senses enhanced for a non-sighted audience’.

 

Studying Hamlet

 

The play is a masterpiece, visually perfectly refined. Everything in it spins, turns. [Spektakl to arcydzieło, wizualnie doskonale dopracowane. Wszystko w nim wiruje, przeistacza.]

 

 

Against Nothingness or 3cm Above an Empty Head - 5*

This has to be one of the most genuinely creative shows I have seen at the Fringe and the talented company is truly world class. See them while you can.
