Monster of the Deep 3D
An amiable and tight performance
This article is from 2010.
Claudia O’Doherty is a quirky little fish. Her show brings to mind the type of bonkers shenanigans which Bridget Christie gets up to, where a world is created almost out of scratch, infiltrated by rigorous detail and manically explored to highlight the most absurd situations and material possible. This hour features Aquaplex, the underwater civilisation that was founded in the 1970s between Australia and Vanuatu with initial promise but ultimately disastrous consequences. An amiable and tight performance from O’Doherty prevents her staged venture from sinking without trace.
