“James Thierrée once said that his faith is contained in the knee cups and that his ideas are soaring between the flies and the stage. Hereby he indicated that his imagination is stirred by the muscles and that no magic is possible without mechanical blocks or ropes. This means that beginning with the fantastic 1998 production of La Symphonie du Hanneton these very real devices have been at the core of all Thierrée’s stagings, head spinning, at times almost unreal and taking us to the faraway world of dreams. He creates performances that like butterflies enter our memories and stay there forever. His new production of The Toad Knew is weaved out of the same fabric. It is permeated with melancholy and bohemian madness that typify the actor both in theatre and film…

James Thierrées extravaganzas makes us to sigh out ‘Oh. They lift us from our seats and throw into the action.”
