PRESS

"Visually striking and infused with an exuberant energy, Divine Madness is something of a wild, bittersweet joy" - Chris O'Rourke, The Arts Review

 

"Inventions is driven by the sense of falling, of moment-to-moment normality swept away in a self-consuming emotional vortex... The dancing from the entire cast is always laser-focused and impressively committed" - Michael Seaver, The Irish Times

"Highly original and exploratory... every minute of the show is a reminder of the versatility, adaptability, resilience, discipline and strength of singers and dancers" - No More Workhorse

"A full-throated and full-bodied exploration of the physicality of the operatic soprano" - Michael Seaver, The Irish Times

Ranging from simplicity of Mary Nunan to poetic angst of Mufutau Yusuf… to infectious rhythms of Liam O Scanlain… to wild fantasy-inducing people-forest of John Scott” - Wendy Perron, Dance Magazine
