  • Drop Dead Gorgeous, Crucible Studio, Sheffield

    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.

    The Herald, 9 February 2001

    One look at the set for this piece by Vincent Dance Theatre and you know this is not a circus you would runaway from home to join – not even if home was hell on earth. An overhead confusion of wires flutters with shabby bunting, kitchen chairs, an old tin bath.

  • Dance Was Dead Risky

    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?

    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.

  • Caravan of Lies, Crucible Studio, Sheffield

    Sheffield Telegraph, 6 October 2000

    This circus Is the last enclave of fading sparkle as disillusioned performers cling to dreams of old glory. Friction between them is quickly and cleverly established without words. These people have a past we have blundered into as their tensions come to a head. Darker sides of personality break out, and emotions are shown in high energy, mesmeric dance or short bursts of dialogue.

  • Falling from the High Rise of Love, Jacksons Lane, London

    The Stage, 28 October 1999

    Against a brutalist backdrop of a billboard bra advert, a young woman, wary and wired, tries to hold a towel on while attempting some vigorous dance moves.
