Press Quotes

  • ""...the cast of six performs a sequence of leaning, sinking, and rising so fluidly that they seem to be sharing a single breath. As they stand close and give in to the supple, suspended movement, it all comes across as the most logical - perhaps the only possible - response to the music - a languid, meandering section at the end of Stravinsky's Serenade in A (1925).""
