“Patrycja Kujawska, one of the dancers is also a first rate violinist” New York Times, John Rockwell
“Patrycja Kujawska once again uses her impressive physicality and superbly expressive features to round out a character without speaking a single word” Tracey Sinclair, Exeunt
“We don't see this rough, muscular style very often, and Kujawska in particular is mesmerising.”
Sydney Morning Herald, Jason Blake
“The physical prowess of our heroine, played expertly by Patrycja Kujawska, deserves a special mention, truly capturing the anguish of her character’s curse to never stop dancing through her fantastically flaying movements and frantic tapping.” University of Warwick newspaper
