A glorious explosion… Doku Rai is angry and joyful, loud and intimate, confronting and welcoming – and all the more glorious for its contradictions. This is theatre so authentic and original that it should be compulsory.
Tough, uncompromising, anarchic and almost recklessly irreverent. Doku Rai seeps into you like some kind of black magic. It’s the kind of immersive experience you want to have in the theatre. But rarely do.
A thick and thorough dialogue with the recent history of one of Australia’s closest neighbours, politicised and aestheticised with remarkable effectiveness.
A vivid communion of cultures ancient and modern. It expands the realm of theatrical possibility.
Doku Rai makes one realise how predictable much of our theatre is - that most miraculous of devices, surprise is often missing. Here, one is swept along on a tide of surprises, with the glorious sensation of having no idea of the destination.
The Sydney Morning Herald
One of the most intriguing and exotic collages of narrative, mysticism, mystery, multimedia, mythology, sadness, abstraction and humour you will ever see.
The Barefoot Review, Adelaide
A remarkable collaboration - Doku Rai is powerfully ramshackle, starkly eloquent, touching and funny and brutal.
