About the creators:
Born in a Taxi is one of Melbourne's most highly regarded physical theatre ensembles and creators of contemporary performance. The company produces highly original, physically driven and participatory works in site specific and outdoor contexts.

"The ingenuity of this manifestation must be acknowledged. It spurts water, ups a periscope; its eye the one we can see closes, opens and rolls; its huge mouth opens, its tongue lifts; its pectoral fin moves, its tail lifts ... It is even able to poop out people!" - John Smythe 2011 New Zealand Performing Arts Review.
