“Original and inventive, every movement creating its own mood of romance or ritual, fantasy or drama” The Irish Times

“A measured and physically diverse piece, it gave great room for the dancers to express individual styles and for the company to display a range of technique that was controlled but very fluent” The Tribune Magazine
