“The appealing Bath Day is made with professionalism and precision. Puppets used in the show are ordinary toy dogs and in the beginning they seem inanimate. A witty twist and a change of rhythm occurs when the puppeteers dressed in neutral black costumes bring the dogs to life. Their movements become human-like, detailed and natural. With the light musical accompaniment the dogs begin to move on the drying line – first carefully and clumsily, then getting braver, performing more and more demanding tricks on the rope. The white linens – towels, sheets and underskirts – provide a life-like, yet challenging background, inviting to play.” Annina Karhu, Turun Sanomat 10.2.2010. Translated from Finnish by Laura Hallantie
