Reviews Feature

“...sparkling with consummate artistry…”

NZ Herald

The sheer spectacle of seeing another human spinning, contorting and leaping all at the same time, while also acting a subtly interwoven yet compelling story is staggering…
Quite honestly I sat there a little dumbfounded.


"...we didn’t want it to end!"

"...world class... incredible."

"I actually shed tears twice during the show, and sat there mouth open, completely enthralled. Such a great show!"
