"[This] collection of . . . multi-disciplinary adventures induces territories of dissent and identity, both of and beyond the stage. . . . [Rodrigo] Toscano has produced an often gleeful romp wherein the geometry of the self affirms/celebrates its style while steadfastly subverting institutionalized forms."--Sustainable Aircraft

"... The art of play has found a very talented proponent. Part carnivalesque rap, part sleight-of-hand hustle, Collapsible Poets Theater maneuvers its way through public language of several sorts to give theater a Realpolitik poetic voice.... From "BALK TO BILK" wordplay doubles as subversive text in virtue of its voicing passed through from player to player.... The poetry, built of linguistic slippage, occurs all the more readily for the bilingual speaker or the ex-patriot, whose frames of reference are plural and yet destabilized." - from the foreword by Marjorie Welish"
