Spring Awakening

“Dundee Rep and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland have to be commended for their creative ambition. In the face of Spring Awakening‘s notoriously difficult themes, the cast’s energy and excitement creates a well-acted and stunningly-staged show.”

BA Modern Ballet Graduation Performance

“the programme launches into an entertainingly diverse mix of short pieces, that included Incognito, an edgy take on identity conflicts by Danila Marzilli, currently a Year 2 student. Two couples from Year 3 – Jake Davies and Anna Williams alongside Keenan Fletcher and Lucy MacPhail – rose confidently to the nuanced challenges of an excerpt from Krzysztof Pastor’s Light and Shadow. Composer Philip Glass was the driving energy behind Diana Loosmore’s Within, where the Year 3 graduates tested their strengths in a broodingly intense, clean-limbed contemporary reflection on shifting encounters.”

Edinburgh Festival Fringe – Legacy: The Book of Names

“Legacy: The Book Of Names has no weak elements. A simple but staggering surprise of considerable beauty and talent, the only fault of this production is that it is not two-hours longer and in a room three times the size.”

Edinburgh Festival Fringe – Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
