Audience Feedback

What audiences are saying:

This must be the best theatrical event of the Brighton fringe festival. It was innovative and informative combining music, dance, poetry and some of the most amazing costumes I have ever seen on stage. If you do not like insects this show will make you change your mind I reluctantly conceded an affection for even the pesky house fly. Kate audience member

The insect protagonists charmed, entertained and informed us through a blend of music, mime, dance, story telling, poetry and prose.   An intelligent and amusing script and costumes of quite outstanding inventiveness this is the most original and creative show I have seen on the Brighton Fringe. They deserve every success.

The costumes were jaw-droppingly fab – Andrea is off the scale brilliant. Persephone Pearl, ONCA

Terabac is a bonanza of delights from start to finish. In this vibrant and multi-faceted cabaret adventure, the networks of microcosmic fauna that sustain our entire world are explored through a series of vignettes on the lifecycles of key insect species. Their twin imperatives of survival and reproduction are crystallised into thought-provoking monologues, verses and eurhythmics. Stephen audience member

Terabac was a delightfully original performance. The insects’ protagonists charmed, entertained and informed us through a blend of music, mime, dance, story telling, poetry and prose. Not to mention amazing sound effects! In the end though it was the costumes stole the show and were as awe inspiring as the insect world portrayed. A must see. Helen audience member

Congratulations on a very successful performance on Sunday. I really enjoyed it. It was so entertaining, full of facts and figures (not that I can remember them all), such fun and beautiful to watch and listen to the beautiful music and songs. I loved the movers too. The costumes were just something else! I loved it all. I wish I had a booklet of all the information about the little creatures to take away to read later and remind me about what I heard in the performance. I so want to see it again. Just the right length and what an amazing group of talented women you all are. Carol audience member

I was so glad to have gone. It was brilliant – I found it moving, beautifully choreographed, a lovely combination of music and dance and stories that tell of insects’ life stories and a perspective on climate change from their point of view. Jocelyn audience member

I loved the dung beetle story and the dramatic spider relationship and the splendid praying mantis. The costumes were wonderful and easily recognizable, definitely worth the invitation to touch session beforehand. It was educational but not at all dry. Political but not tub thumping. audience member 

I thought it was wonderfully creative, funny, sexy, and highly original as well as being relevant to our current plight.  It deserves to go further. I thought the costumes were fantastic, the concept great and the inclusion of the two professional dancers gave it something extra.

What an exceptionally inventive and creative show! The idea of a staged event set around the sexual and emotional lives of insects is extraordinary but making it work as a first class piece of theatre is a real achievement. The performances, dialogue, costumes and music were all excellent. I hope they will include cockroaches in their next show. Philip audience member
