starstarstarstar Elemental, magical, and eternal.....Many bright spots....the cast managed to capture the humanity, sexy physicality and joie-de-vivre the piece demands.  Capraru is a good artistic ally for Zimmerman….she thoroughly understands the playwright’s vision  and ably emphasizes the play’s poetic physicality and a welcome irreverence that verges on the bawdy.”  -  The Times Colonist, Victoria

Excellent and imaginative piece of theatrical magic.  Probably the best show of their season...Capraru is an outstanding talent, evidenced not only by the cast’s performances but also in her fresh approach to the material itself - everything from an aquatic kung-fu battle to some moments of sheer visual poetry…It’s worth catching this show for her work alone.”  -  Monday Magazine, Victoria

Capraru uses a distinctly physical approach to the staging that matches the youthful and uniformly striking cast. - CBC Radio

Their strongest production in years.  Capraru's water-staging is highly inventive and exciting to watch.  The myths flow into one another in increasingly dark and intense waves. - The Martlet
