“Overlaying it all, and doing more work holding the show together than the actual story, are the band Irya’s Playground, live on stage. The band have a very large sound; it’s great, and I think Cirkör make the right decisions about when to use it. The music has immediacy and excitement, but also erases close detail—so they keep silence for the bottle-walk, but as André Farstad turns the Roue Cyr the band sing ‘My Angel’ and attention rests somewhere in the warm, blurry interzone between sound and action.”
