Look into the human face of greed – live acting, visuals and a binaural soundscape that gives you the chills. The Cum-ex tax scam: 50 billion GBP "robbed" from the treasuries around Europe! The use of headphones and 3D-sound creates an intimate connection with the cynical financier on stage when he is interrogated at a party in the club, in the shower, in a bank in Zürich. ‘Gifted, socially engaged performance’ ***** ( ’Innovative and exciting’ ***** ( ‘Mindful and sensual’ ***** ( Nominated best male actor and best special show in Denmark 2021 (CPHCulture).

Utterly immersive and compelling exploration of the demonic power of 'Mamon' - incredible script writer and phenomenal performance from the actor. The performer was a true artist with a diverse ability, including a kaleidoscope of incisive, compelling and emotive physical theatre. This was one of best pieces of theatre I have ever seen, well deserving of its "Fringe First". In my opinion this should be part of the Edinburgh Festival next year and not 'just' in the Fringe. *****

What a revelation. Why have we not heard more about this scandal. Hats off to Teater Katapult for this unusual performance

★★★★★ Inside the mind of THE INSIDER

* The Tension. A contemporary Wolf of Wall Street on stage.
* The Acting. The emotional turmoil was palpable and raw. Kudos to the performer!
* The Experience. An unparalleled cinematic immersion forged through the combination of the glass box and headphones.

* Depth Exploration. Though brilliantly executed, there was space for more intricate narrative to be told. Be it about tax fraud or ethical issues.
