Saturday, August 5 - Very. very well done. It was funny, charming, unusual, thought-provoking and had the most unusual show ending I have ever seen at the Fringe.

Monday, August 7 -I was intrigued by the preview for this show - not for content, but for the talented physical performance. The show itself was funny, poignant, and really spoke to the need we all have for relationship. Ingrid Hansen is a hugely talented physical performer, but she doesn't use her physicality just for a cheap laugh. She drew the audience in with the realism of her motion, and her emotion. Highly recommend! Deserée W.

Monday, August 7 - This show is completely captivating right from the beginning. The characters are believable and one is able to invest on them from the moment they walk onto stage. The show will have you in stitches from the beginning until the ending. Definitely worth going to check out!! Erin Lang

Saturday, August 5 - OK, five stars in the Star Phoenix which I can appreciate, but not our thing. No dialogue, lots of noises from the actress tho, heartbreaking scenes very emotional, but I prefer dialogue.....try it, lots of people there but definitely not my thing.

Monday, August 7 - Ingenious and masterful display of puppetry and story telling. It really catches and engages the viewer in a dynamic and interwoven story of isolation and longing for more connectedness. Ingrid displays dynamic characterization and strength in the entire play. Excellent work, would love to see it again! Nicholas F.

Monday, August 7 - Interstellar Elder begins as a sci-fi farce and quickly becomes a Pixar movie come to life. A one woman show, our sole heroine easily mixes physical humour and gags with heartfelt intentions. Though there is little spoken dialogue, a beautiful soundtrack and an omnipresent computer voice provide a feast for the ears as well as the eyes. Interstellar Elder is laugh out loud funny and perfect for fearless and involved theatre-goers. 4.5 / 5 Jazmin Evers

Tuesday, August 8 - Interstellar Elder is likely to be amongst the richest looking shows on the Fringe circuit this year in terms of its production values: set dressing, costumes, lights and sound, and special FX. In the sea of the usual bare-stage minimalist offerings (that choice by reason of sheer economics and transportability) Interstellar Elder is a stand out! It is admirable the way it achieves its opulence and slickness actually with the simplest of basic elements of stagecraft. For instance, in the darkness the light on a helmet illuminates the face of the actor and a mesmerising object in her hand. Or a few LED lights in a bunched up cape of semi-opaque plastic become vengefully cannibalistic creature to be vanquished. Especially impressive is the mix of perfectly chosen atmospheric music and a truly eerie recorded voice giving robotic instruction spiced up with electronic beeps and slurs produced by the actor’s voice, while live on stage she subtly uses other phatic sounds for her immediate FX. Pure genius As an aside, I have to confess that 96-year-old Kitt’s cleaning the glass of the spaceship’s porthole to look out was enough to give me a little cosmic orgasm when I least expected it. Even more satisfying – and laudable – is the fact that Ingrid Hansen and her SNAFU company have cleverly packaged what in lesser hands would be merely a series of specialty turns (principally of mime and object manipulation) into a dramatically coherent and – yes – touching story that still manages to include the type of audience participation we expect from clown acts. I mean TOTAL audience participation. Come by the venue at the end of the show and see what I mean. Let me rephrase that: come INTO the venue at the start to watch, marvel, and participate in the clever reboot of humankind after a cryogenic aeon of circling our ailing planet. I am convinced you will be blown away by the inventiveness of this production and the talent of its young performer.
