"it makes you want to go home and create an exhibition of your own" THE LIST
"The mesmerised smiling faces of children of all ages (the cliché of 8 to 80 applies) is evidence of their delight at this beautifully bonkers show" Irene Brown, The Wee Review
"There has always been a delightfully liberated eccentricity to the work of children’s theatremaker Shona Reppe. However, this piece, in which we are invited into the imaginative world of contemporary artist extraordinaire Atlantis Banal, is, perhaps, her most gloriously bonkers creation thus far." MARK BROWN, THE HERALD
