Press Quotes

  • "... the dancers, dressed in heavy velvet, could be medieval figures in a cathedral, making aspiring, searching gestures as they move on and off a central staircase. It's gorgeous, and exquisitely timed."
  • "From the simple act of falling down stairs this microcosmic world of music and dance follows."
