Unanimous critical praise for Sergio Blanco's WHEN YOU WALK OVER MY GRAVE at EIF:
THE GUARDIAN ****
‘…a funny and oddball commentary on our relationship with death.’
THE HERALD SCOTLAND ****
'A perversely life affirming piece of meta-theatrical fun'
THE WEE REVIEW ****
‘A witty, subversive and multi-layered exploration of life, death and finding meaning in both’
‘What is certain though is that When You Walk Over My Grave will leave an impression – for all the right reasons.’
THE SCOTSMAN ****
'...theatre maker Sergio Blanco creates this brilliant, disturbing show'
'As this superb, serious and witty cast guide us through the story, Blanco’s work gradually emerges as a fascinating and searching study of mortality, love, desire, and our relationship with the past'
‘It’s dizzying stuff, dense and chewy, but also delivered with a deadpan zeal that curbs any accusations of pretentiousness. Fear of death is a thread that binds every creature on this planet, but it doesn’t seem so bad through Blanco’s eyes.’
THE MORNING STAR ****
‘…the outstanding foreign production of the festival and a master-class in autobiographical theatre, or “Auto-ficion” ….Blanco alone has mastered this genre: he is able to separate artist from performer even as he maintains their sameness. This is a very significant achievement…’
