★★★★
 Broadway World UK

"They deliver a compelling piece that fuses comedy with the dark and primal story, drawing a jarring comparison between the modern world and its mythical counterpart"

★★★★ Within Her Words

"Bold, innovative and totally ruthless in its mission to tell its story, Fall Prettier is definitely a show you can watch multiple times, taking something different with each viewing."

Performance Workshop as part of this years' Art Peace Project at the University of Hamburg. The plaster cast collection of the University of Hamburg becomes our archive, place of research and stage.
