The Fallen Mystery

“The Fallen Mystery is a terrific piece of genre play - a chiaroscuro nightmare where Sam Spade gets spliced together with David Lynch.”

Erin Harrington,Theatreview,2015

“... completely swept up by the Fallen Mystery: it's a beautifully designed package, from the 1940s costumes to the inspired lighting and sound design, through to the thoroughly compelling narrative and expression of the dancers themselves”
Erin Harrington,Theatreview, 2015

"The Fallen Mystery, an absorbing hour-long work … There’s a sense of refinement here, of things being pared back to the essentials and then polished to perfection"
Raewyn Whyte,Theatreview, 2015
