“The movement is sinuous, percussive, spiritual, and in places relentless.”

- Buzz Magazine 

“It’s a stylish, impassioned work that strikes a deft balance between seriousness and silliness, softness and vibrancy.”

- The Stage

“Fletcher’s stunning lighting design is the other star of Atalaÿ – The moment where one solo performer movement skews and distorts the backlight was my highlight of the piece"

- Arthur's Seat
