“Star-Shaped Biscuit is a remarkably strange and singular work that channels modernism’s untrammeled, lunatic invention to spellbinding effect.”
“The audience is assembled in a ravaged industrial space at the outer reaches of the Snape Maltings complex. Everything is coated in ash, the bones of the building groan in the night air, the moon drifts overhead, with the autumn cold just beginning to bite. A small ensemble crafted a fine mist of silvery noise, all glassy shivers, metallic growls and thunderous percussion that suggested a decaying house troubled by an especially malevolent poltergeist.”
