THE CHOSEN

Intense and beautiful interpretation of death and life between a heartbeat.                        Audience member, Ullapool

I became very emotionally caught up in this performance. It built up slowly and I became very involved. Tears fell as I thought of my mother. This is the connection dance should make for us.                     

Audience member, Ullapool

Very intense and emotional performance. I swam in memories of friends and family past   Audience member, Ullapool

There were moments where I felt quite personally touched, like it was directed at me, Might have been a smile or a flick of the hand.  It made your heart beat change as if you were performing the piece yourself.  The energy that was left in the room was one I’ve never experienced with dance. Everyone felt the need to stay and let it sink in.               Audience member, Ullapool

Wonderfully moving performance. Brought me to tears. Made me think a lot of the futility, beauty and fortune of the fruits of our labour. Absolutely fantastic.                                      

Audience member, Northwall Arts, Oxford

Thought provoking, having recently lost someone in my family I really related to this piece. It actually helped me identify feelings that I was struggling to go through myself – thank you.                    

Audience member, Paisley Arts Centre

Thank you from the depth of my heart for a fabulous performance. Touching on the movements in life with such beauty and depth.      

Audience member, Dunoon

It touched under the radar and let me breath the rawness of loss yet was totally inspiring.   Audience member, Universal Hall, Findhorn

I feel I have been taken on a journey of my own nervous system – best experience I have felt in a long time.            

Audience member, Universal Hall, Findhorn

It’s difficult to know what to write as I feel I’m still recovering  - an emotional rollercoaster, meshing fundamental aspects of life with my own personal experiences. Thank you!                    

Audience member, The Barn, Banchory

I guess this show said a lot of things that I needed to hear. It can be lonely on the outskirts of things and it was revitalising to see people interpret a mass of complexity that words can never reach. Thank you kindly. Thank you. Thank you.                                 Audience member, Tron Theatre, Glasgow

 

First time I’ve connected quite so deeply to dance.

LADY MACBETH: UNSEX ME HERE

 

“That was so cool!  Didn't know what to expect going in, but the physicality was astounding.  The direct references to the play were helpful in maintaining relevance to the plot.  Lighting was gorgeous, dancing incredible, sound so interesting, costume gorgeous.  Everything was incredible. WOW *****”

“Beautiful, thought provoking performance.  The play with gender roles was fascinating and really interesting in performance art discourse.  The experience was incredibly immersive, powerful, dramatic and emotive.  Both beautiful and strong in the physicality.  Loved the symbolism and use of costume and props."

“The torture of Lady M was captured beautifully.  Painful and gorgeous.  Captivating performances. Clever staging and excellent lighting design.”

“I don’t know much about Shakespeare, theatre or dance but I thought that was bloody brilliant.  Really, really enjoyed it!  I didn't get bored even for 10 seconds.  Beautiful choreography and strong dancers. I think the images will stay with me for months.  Cheers!”

“Beautiful stage setting, it gives an atmosphere which can serve as a contrast for the rest mostly because of the use of lighting.  Stunning performances, powerful message.  Thank you for the experience.”

“A wonderful piece of movement and music! Such beautiful emotion and heartfelt dancing! A very emotive and visceral piece of dance theatre and truly one of the best performances I have ever experienced! DO MORE!!"

“Very enjoyable.  Stunning piece of theatre.”

“This show was as thought provoking as it was visually stunning.  A take on Macbeth I never realised I needed.  Amazing.  Will start a fascinating conversation about gender roles in theatre which I look forward to participating in.”

“outstanding! Never seen anything like it.  Congratulations.”

“Really interesting way to portray Lady Macbeth, really hypnotic performance, also quite uncomfortable at a lot of points seeing actors/dancers bare all in their performance.  I loved how the three male performers really depicted the maternal side of her nature.  Fantastic!!”

“Very powerful.  Themes were explored in a strong way.  Dancing and acting was emotional and unsettling.  Amazing performance.  Wish I had more knowledge of BSL.”

“A moving  show.  Full of emotion.  Really got me thinking about gender-perceived gender, role of m/women.  And grief, mental illness.

 

NIJINSKY'S LAST JUMP

 

“I absolutely was absorbed by both your amazing performances.  The dancing and the acting was moving and I felt you both, the elder and younger Nijinsky, the two of you were as one.”

“Very moving. Very realistic portrayal of Schizophrenia. Harrowing to watch the suffering. Body movement lovely.”

“The show was captivating - right from the beginning when Old Nijinsky danced in his chair. All of the dancing was so expressive. A beautiful sad story.”

“Really enjoyable, powerful performance and full of energy.  I loved it.”

“Absolutely superb”

“Stunning.  Made me cry”

“Compelling and moving performance”

“I found the performance spell-binding. Quite magnificent and very moving.”

“This was a brilliant performance.  The acting and dancing was so profound.  I felt so moved and mesmerised at every moment of the play/performance.  Perfect.”

“Very emotional performance.  Connecting the spoken word and movement to bring Nijinsky’s fate alive”

“Nijinsky’s Last Jump is like nothing I’ve ever experienced!!”

“Fantastic, wonderful.  Amazing, brilliant, moving.  Loved every minute.  Best thing I’ve seen this year”

“Very powerful.”

"Is it a drama/dance, or a dance/drama? It doesn't matter which way you see it, Nijinsky's Last Jump, with Darren Brownlie and Jim Bryce is absolutely beautiful. Deliciously slow in this rush, rush world with finely detailed performances from both of them. What a tragic waste of a life. Needless to say, I was greetin'.  Tremendous stuff."
