    Hiroaki Umeda, who immerses himself in such a perfect storm of light, video and sound that his body rarely looks human.

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 18 January 2012Performance 16 & 17 Jan 2012

    Mixing dance, computer imagery and video projection, Umeda surrounds and transforms himself with shifting light, then stops. He refuses to develop the images or ideas: there they are, take it or leave it.

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 15 January 2012Performance 11 Jan 2012

    The formula is three pieces per programme, with an average length of 20 minutes per piece. There’s dross, but there’s gold dust too, and you’re the preview audience.
