"This remarkable company gave us a version of Shakespeare's Tempest that was brimming with innovation, imagination, and creativity. You never went for the easy option, blending dance, mime, music, and multimedia into an extraordinary piece of theatre that proved to be by turns funny, thrilling, and moving. Very well done to all of you.”

Thank you for bringing it to the Festival."
