    I enjoyed the idea and the performance. Sign me up for a brick

    We thought the visual of building the wall worked really well in the space as because of the industrial feel created. The text was engaging and the ‘idea’ left us with a feeling of unease and questions of morality. It was difficult to fully engage with the performance as we were standing towards the back and couldn’t see much of the actor resulting in feeling distanced and distracted from the main focus. The boy questionning the father at the end broke the text in an endearing and humorous way. Intrigued to see how this piece will develop!

    Wonderful images, both in the words and in the epic setting of the stage. I liked the contrast of the honesty between the father and son and the encounters and imaginings of the father. Would like to see this go further, and I would like my bones to contribute to the ziggurat! – I think…

    Probably the most lasting and thought-provoking piece of the night – for me at least. It connected with me partly due to my own investigations into generational shift and mortality, but I think these ideas are of wide appeal, and with the imagination and effort that I’m sure will go into it, the piece could go a long way.
