"TULP is a revelation - a confronting, sometimes unbearably
intimate collage of what it means to be human."
– Harriet Cunningham, Sydney Morning Herald
“I came out from the experience genuinely exhilarated and
satisfied…a wonderfully rich and characteristic visual language,
strong themes and some great materials.”
--Damien Ricketson, Artistic Director - Ensemble
"A cut above the rest"
- Joyce Morgan, Sydney Morning Herald
"Tulp is another work of extremes, again about the body and our ambivalent
relationship to it, but the dynamic between pain and release, despair
and hope is this time delicately balanced. In its most accessible work
to date, the Elision new music ensemble has created a wonderful hybrid,
fusing documentary, new music and digital art into a vibrant new form
of music theatre. Composer John Rogers and interdisciplinary artist Justine
Cooper come together to realise a sustained reverie on the body, from
birth to death, with many remarkable tales told by volunteers. "
-- Keith GALLASCH, RealTime 59
