Review Extracts

"Deux ex Machina, is something of a teaser with its decision to explore the world of a creator whose creatures assume lives of their own. There is a bold, cutting score by Per Norgaard, two men and a woman in night clothes and much activity with a silver pendulum and a reflecting sheet of glass on the ground. Ours not to reason the motives of the choreography, which seems obscure, but to admire the images which pin the dance fast, and hold out attention. It is odd, but ultimately gripping. "
