Those Eyes, That Mouth


Mark Brown, Scotland on Sunday

Their wonderful new piece, Those Eyes, That Mouth, provides exhilarating, deeply emotive evidence of their leading role in the movement to redefine our understanding of the theatrical. . .Ben Harrison’s company strives to awaken our humanity by enlivening our senses. With this startlingly original, poignant piece they are utterly successful. . .this is contemporary theatre at its very best.

Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman

Ben Harrison’s production at Abercromby Place is one of those perfectly-sculpted theatre events in which every element seems to glow with an inner sense of beauty and meaning. . .The show also resonates with dozens of references to other works about heartbreak, haunting, breakdown and loss as a way of deepening the emotional texture of the event; and as Fringe productions go, this is about as rich, beautiful and completely satisfying an 80 minutes as you are ever likely to experience.

Kate Bassett, Independent on Sunday

Grid Iron’s thrilling site-specific show. . .sharp twists and imaginative surprises to knock you sideways.

Susannah Clapp, The Observer

Grid Iron are the magicians of site-specific performances. . .unwrapping surprises at each turn… visionary glimpses [which] make you look again at the city outside.
