"Much of the appeal is from the pleasure of invention... and the dexterity, precision and energy of the performers is engaging and disconcertingly infectious." - The Financial Times
"This glorious act without words, in which a company of eight throw themselves body and soul into creating rhythms of every complexity and volume using the most basic found objects (brooms, cigarette-lighters, dustbins and oildrums) is an uplifting hymn to the art of making the most of minimalist means." - The Daily Telegraph
