Press Reviews for “Drop Dead Gorgeous”

  • Drop Dead Gorgeous, Purcell Rooms, London

    By Donald Hutera

    The Times, 27 February 2002

    Charlotte Vincent and members of her Sheffield-based Vincent Dance Theatre devised Drop Dead Gorgeous last summer, with Poland’s Dada von Bzudlow Theatre. The show, touring the UK until March 11, is a study of civilian apocalypse in a state of wartime emergency.

  • Drop Dead Gorgeous, The Riley Theatre, Leeds

    The Guardian, 5 November 2001

    As clouds of dust rise, they stagger, slide and crash on the shards of rubble that once was their city… Charlotte Vincent and her company of five live and die amid the horror of war in this arresting co-production with the Dada Von Bzudlow Theatre of Gdansk.

  • Drop Dead Gorgeous, Crucible Studio, Sheffield

    By Clare Jones

    Sheffield Telegraph, 2 November 2001

    They say the world changed after 11 September and that life can never be the same. Media hype? Political rhetoric? Or perhaps the zeitgeist has changed.

  • Dance Was Dead Risky

    By Dawn Gorman

    Trowbridge Guardian

    Groundbreaking, powerful and effective as this piece of dance theatre is, it is unlikely that anyone at the Arc’s sellout audience last week would have admit to having enjoyed it. Because how do you admit to enjoying an intense, hour-long plus exploration of war, rape and death?

  • Drop Dead Gorgeous, Purcell Room, London

    Dance Europe

    Works on the theme of war or human rights have a special resonance for me. These artists from Poland and the UK devised this Tanztheater piece in the second half on 2001 and September 11th came during the creation process.
