Theatreview: "Venus Is . . . is very physical theatre which intersperses cirque feats, burlesque sequences, audience interaction, sultry songs, bursts of dance, and cameo moments from variously garbed characters, all related to . . . various aspects of love. . . . definitely the kind of show you need to see more than once".
NZ Herald: "Dust Palace's exuberant paean to the joys of erotic indulgence. The show offers up a smorgasbord of theatrical forms with acrobatics, contemporary dance and puppetry interwoven with song, recitations and dramatic sketches . . . the highlights of the show come with the superbly choreographed acrobatics featuring the finely muscled bodies and disciplined athleticism of highly trained performers".
The Common Critic: "Through bawdy and joyful dancing, Nina Simone jams sung with moving energy, intense sex scenes on a four-poster bed and good ol' ribald humour, this show is just begging to be adored - and goes to great lengths for it".
