A dreamy, dervishing solo for Amir Giles is the evening's choreographic highlight
- Financial Times ★★★★
Remarkable performers
- The Times ★★★★
It is the weary tango performed by the eight company dancers, their eyes ringed black, the girls' suspenders drooping to their knees, that stays in the memory
- The Telegraph ★★★★
The tango sequence (coached by Amir Giles) is both funny and touching, ochos swivelling dangerously off centre, sentadas a chance for an all too brief sit down.
- The Financial Times
A lyrical contemporary solo by Amir Giles is a particularly poignant and moving interlude. Spinning and spiralling on a circular path, he stares out beyond the audience, his anguish palpable.
