Press Quotes

"Other choreographers may force-feed each minute ten times as many actions, but few can match the vibrancy of Morris' stage pictures on the whole."

- Time Out New York

"The song lyrics are partially enacted in the relationships between dancers - cute, funny, and sad - as if these really are the romantic dalliances of young villagers after the Ceilidh in Innisfree or Brigadoon. But above any implied narrative, their movement flows freely, scythed into the music like a seal pressed into molten wax. It's the music that moves these Morris dancers and he conducts every body's action as he might instruct instruments in an orchestra."

- London Dance
