Media & Audience

“★★★★ …boundaries are not only pushed, they’re bent, buckled and broken in a joyful celebration of the extended possibilities of the art form.” – Limelight Magazine

“A smart, stylish and engrossing piece of theatre” – Daily Review

“★★★★ Her (Rachel Arianne Ogle’s) theme is beautifully illustrated by choreography that links, binds, revolves and releases the five dancers in quite extraordinary ensemble partnering. Ned Beckley’s commissioned score and Benjamin Cisterne’s lighting make strong contributions to an engrossing piece.” – Sydney Morning Herald 

“Jesse Scales has concentrated on the shapes of movement in conveying the anguish of despair in What You See to music by Max Richter. The result is compelling, both in mood and physicality that stimulates the eyes and the senses.” – Sydney Morning Herald

“Scales has an appealing delicacy of touch and feeling” – The Australian
