Seven people, a small room, a door, a million possibilities . . .
What are we waiting for? Lunch, the dentist, Telstra, judgement day, the end? Collective human behaviour under the microscope, from the mildly amusing to the disturbingly surreal . . .when there is nothing else to do.
“What makes this piece radically beautiful is that it interrogates and embodies the random processes intrinsic to human behaviour. Informed by physical theatre, social psychology and neuroscience, The Waiting Room is a living incarnation of fractal art.” Cameron Woodhead, The Age
"It seemed to elicit, in its exits and entrances, human reflections such as Gauguin wrote on one of his Polynesian paintings: “Who are we, where do we come from, where are we going.” In this way, the work was oddly moving. One room, one door, rows of chairs and ourselves as co-performers"
Douglas Leonard Real Time
"The Waiting Room is an extremely difficult experience to describe, it relies on audience interaction, trust and an acceptance of what is going to happen next. However, and I can say this without hyperbole, it is the most mesmerizing experience that I have had all year in the theatre." Nic Velissaris, Australian Stage
“Yet, as with so much of Born in a Taxi's art, this is improvised performance that appears anything but - not least because the equations from which it flows are so meticulously considered.” Cameron Woodhead, The Age
