"The force of the dance comes through the attention to detail and the intricacy of gesture and step: from each individual's isolated dance, a group choreography emerges." Gareth K. Vile, the Skinny

"Spoken directions for movements became, like the shifting timbres of the music, an encouragement to take risks." Mary Brennan, The Herald
