    …she tells us in dance of hypnotic power, hugely demanding, ablaze with energy, not least in a stunningly fierce dialogue between Prospero and Caliban. This is a beautiful and reverberant creation, its score and design wholly apt. It is brilliantly staged, superlat…

    Press Review 3David Jays, Guardian, Sunday 27 April 2014Performance 25 & 26 April 2014

    …having Shakespeare’s tale repeat itself – first as human puppetry, then as dance – certainly makes smart schematic sense. And yet, although Pite broadens her movement palette into martial vigour and elemental swoops, she never leaves the initial mannequi…

    Press Review 4Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Saturday 26 April 2014Performance 25 & 26 April 2014

    The movement, though still stylised, breaches its contained, tightly articulated form, and becomes more expansive. Its fluidity and detail is astonishing, and it prises open the shell of Shakespeare’s mysteries.

    Press Review 3Don Hutera, The Times, Wednesday 23 April 2014Performance 16 - 24 April 2014

    It’s an agreeably clever slice of comic navel-gazing in which the performers verbalise and physicalise the egotistical games, doubts, anxieties and fantasies that one might imagine are common among dancers. Sveaas emerges as the star of the piece thanks to her winnin…
