“A taut production… some of the best Vault Festival has on offer… impressive. … simple and holistic. … always engrossing… a sensitively-judged and effective piece... political theatre at its finest… formidable. … we all deserve to see more work like Foreign Body.” A Younger Theatre
“What’s so beautiful about this show is that the woman’s body... is so present, magnetic, its curves, its sinuous grace, responding with subtle inflection to the voices that surround it. Look, admire, don’t touch.” Medium (Maddy Costa)
“a beautifully crafted performance piece… an open and honest account… effortlessly interwoven [with] an accompaniment of carefully placed harmonics … self-assured... Foreign Body cuts to the core with grace and reminds us to heal.” Miro Magazine
“A truthful tender story of reclaiming the body after abuse. A beautiful and brave piece.... strikingly simple…. one of the most truthful explorations of the subject…. restrained direction... a stunning soundtrack… this show will only continue to grow and charge people with the courage to speak out.” Hiive
