Veldman has substance (and style) in spades’  

Her dance language has that much desired – and rarely realised – balance of flow and image. Bodies are asked to truly understand the notions of rise and fall; and the dancers clearly relish it. 

***** Culture Whisper, Matthew Paluch

 

 

With a cast of seven exceptional dancers, all of whom joyously inhabit Veldman’s rigorous, classically inflected vocabulary, the piece presents us with the highlights of the big day. 

**** The Observer, Luke Jennings

 

‘The production shines brightest, when it dances on the edge of positive and negative, stable and unhinged, beautifully navigating these intersections of emotion and form’

**** DanceTabs, Sara Veale
