„As each curiosity is introduced, it becomes clear that this is a show about connection and fusion. This is a place where the practical meets the aesthetic, where art finds science. This is about the whole. 
That Gottschalk, Mürle and Soehnle are masters of their craft is clarified when a swinging wooden doll is operated by all of them together and their magnetism draws her to them (or her magnetism draws them to her? Or both?), Choreographed so well by Lisa Thomas, the four of them become weightless and flowing. More importantly, they become one. They are unified, dancing to their conclusion.
At the end of the performance, every single artefact and puppet used in the show is laid before us, so we’re not simply seeing the individual pieces, we’re seeing the whole; the sum of the parts.
As for me, I’d see Wunderkammer again because it’s good to feel complete.“

„Out of this extraordinarily moody production oozed something quite retro but at the same time something madly new – a steampunk essay on wires if you like.
There were some delightful uses of simple materials for maximum effect.
You begin to get the idea. There is wit here, perhaps also a sense of longing or loss amongst these devices. As the light went down after each weird interlude you began to wonder what might be next. The audience seemed quite hypnotised.
Wunderkammer represents one big tick for the enchantment of low-tech, and is yet more proof if it be needed that puppetry can go where mainstream acting cannot – taking flight into the fragile nature of a truly surreal world.“

„Their puppets are stringed – offering the fluid, subtle and undulating movement that this mechanism allows. These highly accomplished three puppeteers bought tremendous precision and emotion to their performances, sometimes amazing audiences with technically risky skits (at one point, a small puppet is shuttled between puppeteers on a precarious network of its strings), yet always endearing the audience with those small yet significant gestures that transform puppets into shy, melancholic or vicious creatures before our eyes.
... an enchanting and suitably curious performance overall.
