"a masterpiece of intellect and imagery" ***** Edinburgh Guide

“Visually, the piece is compelling, from the blood-red skirts worn by the performers to the visceral, frenzied interpretation of the sleepwalking scene”   **** The Times

"To peel back and examine each layer of Company Chordelia’s new work in a review this size is an impossibility. So rich in thought, detail and execution is it, you would need an entire thesis to do it justice"    **** The Scotsman

"a dance-drama of quite troubling beauty, psychological insights and richly symbolic imaginings”    **** The Herald

“an original and successful take on one of Shakespeare's most famous dramas"
