“That the rhythm and flow of their speech feels naturally aligned with the playwright’s rhythms is a revelation, another layer peeled back, another discovery made. While the company often do not use the commedia dell’arte make up that they have made famous on these shores, the movement and the listening techniques are still in evidence here, resulting in that gestural lexicon, and bestowing another later of richness onto the proceedings.
Spare and terrible beauty.” ★★★★★
