Critical Acclaim for GOO:GA
'I watch her on screen, heavily pregnant and discussing the terrifying medical diagnosis that her unborn son received using a tableau of the vegetables that always seem to be used to chart a baby’s growth, with my heart in my mouth. Despite the grimness of the subject matter, it is hard not to crack a smile.'
‘…an extraordinary journey of heartbreak, fun facts, searing insight, unexpected laughs and a whole lot more besides, in a densely packed but deeply felt hour [...] brilliantly challenging and uncompromising.’
- Ian Foster
’Hannah is a true experimental artist who is tapping into existing forms while not adhering to their rules and doing shit that truly nobody else is doing.’
- Theresa Buchheister, Artistic Director,The Brick, Brooklyn
‘GOO:GA is funny, subversive, sensItive, inclusive, informative, and touching. It’s a “raunchy feminist comedy” which is constantly watchable [...] there’s even a guest appearance from a ghost.’
- Louise Penn
