    Press Review 3Jeffery Taylor, Express, Monday 22 September 2014Performance 16 - 27 September 2014

    In fact Metheus and The Murmuring are interchangeable, steps and music could be mixed and audiences would never know the difference. But as usual, the evening’s modern dance makers were lucky to have highly talented artists to work with.

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 21 September 2014Performance 16 - 27 September 2014

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 19 September 2014Performance 16 - 27 September 2014

    …whether you’re watching Dane Hurst’s resplendent bird or Hurst and Mbulelo Ndabeni’s cavorting skeletons, a tender love duet or a stunningly rendered night-time fishing trip – the latter eerily playing out to sound-designer Adrian Rhodes’s maelstrom of b…

    Marc Galvez stands out, all fast turns and fluid arms. Whitley’s career as a choreographer is taking off; The Murmuring responds to the BalletBoyz’ stage presence.
