    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 5 July 2010Performance 25 & 26 June 2010

    ‘Interspersing shuffling fragments of dance with spoken litanies of recollection, some of them in Japanese, Ikeda shows how memories spark each other, and just occasionally she manages to convey that particular, prickling synaptic flash which moves us to laughter o…
