My overall impression

Catherine Waller is a creature apart. In her new solo show THE CREEPS she manages to summon for highly distinct personalities that will seer themselves into your mind for days and days to come. I don’t want to give anything away but the title is a perfect description of the vibe from beginning to end. Her body morphs almost supernaturally into distinct personalities so pathetic, disturbed and disturbingly relatable. At times it feels like a horror movie – by horror I mean the horrors of the soul and the mirror is constantly turned on the audience in its interactive format. She crawls around the floor doing things with light and sound that are so perfectly timed that she seems to surpass the physical world entirely. I wish I could meet her at the Fringe central tenants, and if she reads this review I hope she’s encouraged to come by because people need to see this show!
