for a previous production “A wonderful, fast-paced and utterly joyful display of Irish dancing. Geaney is a phenomenal dancer, lightning fast, bursting with energy and amiable with the crowd. Devine visits the stage twice, to tap dance sitting down...Keaney also helps to shake things up, with a mix of hard and soft shoe dancing...Anyone with even a passing interest in Irish dance and tap should buy themselves an hour in Velocity’s company.” Full Review
for a previous production "From simple exchanges, some seriously clever clowning is born. Occasionally it strays into the territory of very high calibre children’s party entertainment, but mostly their interactions highlight the duo’s formidable talent – which becomes more and more apparent as the show develops...Equally impressive is the fact that neither of them speaks at any point. Who needs words when you can communicate everything that needs to be said through two wonderfully expressive faces?" Full Review
for a previous production "It’s not hyperbole to say that 'Water on Mars' is the most enjoyable juggling show I’ve ever seen…At times, when their implements of choice are whizzing through the air, genuine moments of beauty are created. Other times you can’t quite believe what you’re seeing, so fiendishly tricky does it look. Pezzo, Peden and Elmnert are also funny and hugely likable, with none of the pomp and applause-baiting that comes with some companies." Full Review
for a previous production "Funny, clever, surreal and visually striking, this imaginative new show from The Krumple is a gift that keeps on giving…The central premise here–how people cope with the tragedies and chaos life drops in their lap–is universal and timeless. The stories themselves are engaging, but it is the method in which they are told that gives 'Yōkai' its gold star…Words are redundant in the face of such astute movement and razor-sharp timing."

for a previous production "With a Filipino mother and Bangladeshi father, yet influenced by dance routines from America, Khan begins to put all the pieces together and create his own style. All of this is conveyed through a mixture of choreography, spoken text and animation, cleverly re-shaped by director Sue Buckmaster...The animation scene, inspired by an old myth, is utterly captivating, and a sequence about conflict, beautifully scored by composer Jocelyn Pook, is deeply moving. An absolute triumph." Full Review
