‘Dizzying and hypnotic, cutting edge social commentary, part creative resistance and part performance. Gobscures lived experience powerfully shows how personal and political play out. Spellbinding’ - Museum of Homelessness

'intelligent, unsettling and entertaining in equal measure. ... gobscure’s talent lies in their strength in telling difficult stories about abuses of power, inequality and resistance in ways that allow us to examine our own relationship to privilege and marginalisation but always with some focus on the absurd. ... provoked to madness by the brutality ov wealth admonishes us to look for alternative empowering narratives and to regain our voice and to tell different, better stories' extract from the Disability Arts Online review.
