Review Extracts

" There is, until the very last, little that is overtly dramatic or hysterical. There is, instead an inevitability and a developing sense of unease which argues Brandstrup’s constant concern for a clear and purposeful narrative language. Channon is never frightening in behaviour, but wholly inescapable to Leah . Amid the shadows of the setting, the drama is unfailingly effective.

It is a dance work having a consistent and uncompromising vision, and it is very welcome."
