PRAISE FOR SHOWS:

“As entertaining as is humanly possible.”


Glass Contraption audience member



“…charming…” ....“delightful”
“performed with skill and enthusiasm”

“genuinely funny and touching…”

NYTheater.com



“a truly different kind of theater experience...”
“poetical, theatrical and lyrical on the one hand and controlled chaos on the other”


Elise Long, director of Spoke the Hub/Gowanus Arts, Brooklyn



“Although all the performers proved superb, The Glass Contraption especially pleased the crowd…pack[ing] such a lightning punch that their curtain call lasted almost as long as their performance."

Carl Blumenthal, writer for Brooklyn Daily Eagle and founder/publisher of "Arts Alive: A Journal of Brooklyn Culture"



“Amongst this coterie the standouts were a hilarious performance piece by a group called The Glass Contraption entitled "Animals' Heads" which combined shadow puppetry with full audience participation in a visualization and culminated in a fugue of barnyard noises and choral music…"

PRAISE FOR TRAINING AND COMMUNITY-BASED COLLABORATIONS:

"The Glass Contraption changed me as a person. I feel a little braver."

Teen from the 52nd Street Project



“An amazing training, which is nurturing, empowering and thus beneficial for performing artists of all kinds. Every performing artist should be regularly exposed to this kind of training throughout his/her career.”

Media Artes company member



“A school for free and open acting…”

Media Artes company member


“I need this kind of training which “peels” off the social masks and defence mechanisms that we all tend to develop over time. It is very helpful as a means to reconnect with your own vulnerability as an artist and (although it sounds paradoxical) to realize just how big a generator of power one’s own vulnerability can be (if you have the courage to approach it and play with it).”

Media Artes company member



“We never had theater and music here in this particular way. You opened a door and turned a light on inside everyone one here. You brought out each child's hidden talents. Your work gives value to those talents.”

Elizabeth Moshe, The Topsy Center, South Africa
