“…as it draws to a close musicians and dancers freeze; the lighting fades to blackout. Silence for a long moment and then, when you thought it would never happen, the audience bursts into enthusiastic applause. Well justified applause, I have to say.” 

The British Theatre Guide, Twilight Dances 2019

“The company of four dancers… have a confidence and sureness in even the most complex of movements which belie their years.”
