"The final instalment of Peeping Tom’s neurotically fraught family-based trilogy, Child (Kind) is the most daringly dark of them all, unsparing in its juxtaposition of violent imagery and pitch-black humour...Hugely inventive" **** Anna Winter 23 Jan 2020
"What Peden achieves is beyond impressive and, at times, like a magic trick...the most technically incredible juggler in the world. If any of Peden’s routines were to be on a Britain’s Got Talent type of variety show it would undoubtedly be the next day’s water cooler moment in every office in the country" **** Jay Nuttall 21 Jan 2020
"It has a characteristically stunning set: a forest of pines on one side, a cliff of rock on the other. … every scene grips on its own, with great use of sound and set, brilliantly watchable performers" **** Sanjoy Roy 23 Jan 2020
"Man raised alongside chimps says it should never happen again" - Nick Lehane's performance piece, Chimpanzee, in London for the first time, reveals how tragedy stalked the amazing achievement of raising chimps in human families.

"Deliciously disorientating, like being catapulted into a moving, multidimensional collage or a graphic novel that has sprung to life. A magical reflection on loneliness through puppetry and dance" **** Sam Marlowe 17 Jan 2020
"Tria Fata uses bunraku puppets, shadow puppetry, and a dabbling of physical performance with occasional mask-work, supported by a one man band. It’s a sweet, dark, and quirky tale." *** Blake Gordon Plante 21 Jan 2020
"Vitale, who brings Chaplin – that odd rolling walk; the knowingly innocent expression – to uncanny life. Jerone Marsh-Reid is a similarly endearing presence as Laurel, whose gangly physicality contrasts nicely with the pocket-sized Chaplin, on whom he dotes. This fantasia is seldom less than magical." **** Brian Logan 16 Jan 2020
"ultimately this invention-stuffed and music-crammed show (hats off to tireless pianist Sara Alexander) delivers what mime does best – total clarity in terms of movement but an abiding mystery as to what’s fully being said. A treat, silly and sublime" **** Dominic Cavendish 16 Jan 2020
"Hand-drawn backgrounds with defined pencil marks, realistic film, silhouettes, puppets and extravagantly costumed dancers. It’s like all the layers of a person’s experience – sleeping, waking, conscious, subconscious – coexisting... Its dreamlike detachment makes it difficult to love, but this highly original show is strikingly distinctive" *** Lindsey Winship 15 Jan 2020
"In addition to Guichard’s dry but oddly charismatic presence, I found the show captivating as his movement and balances around the kit were quite ingenious....3D has a lovely sense of cohesion"
Olivia Buben 14 Jan 2020
"This former Edinburgh Festival Comedy Awards nominee shows a devotion to creating a sense of event... at upending expectations that is delivered with extraordinary charm and originality" *** Dominic Maxwell 13 Jan 2020
"Rambert-trained duo Daniel Hay-Gordon and Eleanor Perry – aka Thick and Tight – pull a blinder with their latest showcase of lip-syncing physical portraiture, so deft in its blend of parody and pathos." ***** Anna Winter 13 Jan 2020
