||The Dublin Fringe Festival has never before had a more innovative theatre show take part than Ant Hampton and the gang at Rotozaza. Their show 'Doublethink', which featured Rachel, was a fantastic experiment in the psychology of performance and Rachel loves to be experimented on.
"a fascinating exercise in psychological puppetry... a superb deconstruction of notions of relationship... a triumph of technological and conceptual prowess, in the guise of bare-bones avant-gardism."
