‘This kind of bio-theatre is often tedious and full of its own self-importance. Not here. It is not so much what is said as how it’s said that counts in a show in which picture frames become swings, gender shifts magically and past and present mingle in the tortured pictures in Dali’s mind. There is only one word for it: surreal. Well, maybe two: sordidly surreal.’
