“Marston's great strength is her ability to depict nuanced emotional states, particularly those of women. (…) While this is very much a chamber production, examining the cat's cradle of tensions between the five main characters, the emotion is full scale and the final duet between Tattersall and Marshall is taut with sadness and longing.”
The Observer, May 2009

Ashes

“Die nuancenreichen, expressiven Musik von Dave Maric folgend, wird das ganze Spektrum positiver und negativer Energien von Liebe und Hass, Anziehung und Abstoßung, Leidenschaft und Resignation, Beherrschung, Unterwerfung und Aufbegehren, Zartheit und Brutalität zu ex-trem körperbetonter Bewegung mit Verknotungen, Ringkampfgriffen, Schlägen und Kopfstößen.”

“The nuanced, expressive music by Dave Maric employs the full range of positive and negative energies of love and hate, attraction and repulsion, passion and resignation, domination, submission and rebellion, tenderness and brutality matching the extreme choreography of knots, wrestling grips, strokes and head-butting”
