“Against the run of the tide…The biggest risk taker is Cathy Marston, who returns to Dance Bites for the third year in a row. She gives us Tidelines, a meditative piece that wears its intellectual genius with pride (…) Marston produces a staggeringly beautiful and sensually pungent pas de deux that gives the ballet an unforgettable punch line.”
The Sunday Times 1999

“…contrast of form and dynamic movement and stillness, spark off blazing, original images. The group patterns share Forsythe's rule-breaking asymmetries and are startlingly graphic, yet, the actual movement vocabulary in say, the pas de deux for Deborah Bull and Christopher Saunders, is very much Marston’s own, merging fluidity with off-kilter shapes that push the furthest boundaries.”
The Sunday Times 1998
