Reviews

boundless in its energy, searing in its seriousness, and is gloriously funny

- Wales Arts Review

"There's a cacophony of activity on stage demanding our attention, a potent cocktail of tragedy and hedonism to tempt our sensibilities."

- Bachtrack

"In a rousing finale, nine dancers enact a feverish satire of neurotic religious devotion that escalates into orgiastic ridiculousness"

- The Times
