Róisín O’Brien of SeeingDance commends Dollhouse in her review from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. She calls Dollhouse "...an enjoyable event in its own way, sonically compelling and visually intriguing, an hour of curious, intrepid meanderings through an intricately designed environment."
She also remarks on the familiarity of sound created by composer Gordon Monahan.
"I was struck by the familiarity of the sounds, despite the visual and mechanical difference. Plunging water onto pots and pans recalls the sort of grand, sweeping musical moments of dramatic intensity in Hollywood cinema; the distorted noises from the sensors of Coleman’s skin call to mind an alien invasion from a HG Wells novel. Where do sounds normally come from? What noises are we used to? What are we used to as pleasant?"
