[…] Le Périple is a big show made of a collection of tiny little brilliant things. We leave the representation fully confident in humankind, Art, and ingenuity. With small puppets made from tiny pieces of ropes and dancing lights, Agnès Zacharie (luminous) and Pierre Robitaille (larger than life) tell us the story of Antonios Youssef Zakarias, a free soul, mindful to little things

[…] Mrs. Zacharie and her colleague accomplish miracles of evocation. Masters in the manipulation of the textile comedians, flexible and honest in the handling of voices, they communicate a powerful expressivity. We stare at the Earth with an infinite gentleness aboard the stellar bus of Ubus Théâtre.
