    ‘They are funny not because they are good comedians (which they are, too), but because they are good dancers. Not great dancers – I haven’t lost all critical faculty. But good. And, more important, they care passionately about what they do.’

    ‘…the audience vote, and mine, too, went to Aletta Collins’s fiendishly fast, maniacally funny Lap Dancer. The title is a quip in itself, as the solo for Rachel Krische, dressed in office shirt and tie, tracked the inane commands of a laptop computer ov…
