Chicago Tribune - Highly Recommended

"...his 55-minute show comes off as a truly fascinating fusion of the live magic of the pre-pandemic days and whatever new digital reality is settling into the fraught collective consciousness. He has forged a rich sensory experience that feels as live as pretty much anything at the moment."

Chicago Sun Times - Highly Recommended

"...My standard was "Did this take me out of myself, isolated at home in the middle of a dual global pandemic/American political meltdown?" Yes. Would I have felt cheated had I paid the $40 ticket price? Probably not. Would I see another online theatrical production? Absolutely. Does watching "The Journey" online pale compared to being in a theater seat, watching live actors perform "Hecuba"? Absolutely."

Third Coast Review - Recommended

"...Silven is usually a touring performer, but when the pandemic confined him to his home outside Glasgow (he actually has been US-based), he decided to devise The Journey, a new virtual experience. The production team converted Silven's home into a performance space equipped with an audio-visual platform that allows participants to share the experience on-screen with Silven and each other. Elaborate projections across the back of the performance area show sky, sea and landscape scenes."
