Oat Milk & Honey by Mo-ko Piano & circus (Australia) 4*
Movement and music. Acrobatic dancer combining with skilled pianist. Playful interaction and beautiful soloing – particularly Amanda Lee the acrobat. I was having too much of a good time enjoying her extraordinary movements and the atmosphere of the dreamy self-penned music, to feel the anxiety mentioned in the published synopsis. Maybe it was the morning slot, but I came out feeling happy and enlightened.

Moving, a beautiful connection between the two performers through emotional movement. The body control and strength was amazing and the music complemented wonderfully. The piece is about anxiety and how peaceful the piece was.

Maybe it's a bit marmite, but for me despite the talent of the performers this felt like a load of random elements in search of a show.

Soothing, heartbreaking and sublime. The perfect venue and the perfect time slot for this act. What a joyous way to start a day of fringe.

Oat Milk & Honey (*****)
A keyboardist and a gymnast/contortionist collaborate to create a blend of music attuned to her movements. As she rolls, stretches, and twists his music punctuates and/or swoops. Sometimes she would entwine herself around him, and other times she would treat him as a catatonic puppet that she would move with her body parts.

This is the 10th most enjoyable of the 131 shows I have seen so far at the Fringe this year. I hope to see almost 200.

This grew on us as the show went on until we were totally absorbed. Beautiful

I really enjoyed this. One of my highlights of the week. Beautiful, lyrical and talented. The strength, skill and grace of the acrobatics was breathtaking and accompanied by a beautiful soundscape.

I could see that some audience members weren't sure what to make of this show, but I loved it. It's a quiet, calm, thoughtful piece with lots of beautiful & intimate detail & a hint of silliness. I went with 2 friends & we all wanted to just let it percolate, flow & permeate through us afterwards so we could process it. It was couple of hours before we felt ready to see any other shows.
The music was superb, and the interaction between Nathan & Amanda was careful & considered. Probably a bit random, but I found the dexterity of Amanda's feet fascinating too. I love 'high octane' shows too, but Oat Milk & Honey took me to a new place, and it's one I'd like to visit again.

What a fantastic performance. I have googled alpacas running. This show ticked several boxes for us. Highly recommended if you are interested in dance or circus.

Oat Milk & Honey is transcendental and soothing, with a poke of humour.

The score is beautiful and, ironically, it’s the most soothing hour! It didn’t become too frantic or raise the anxiety stakes at any point, playing on much the same level, but is a highly enjoyable start to the Fringe day.
