We participated in the workshop and went to the performance, and they were both absolutely amazing. What a pity there weren't more shows as I have a list of people who I would send to it for a truly wonderful experience. None of us wanted the morning workshop or evening performance to end. We all want you to come back as soon as you can, and as often as you can - an experience which we won't forget. Fantastic ..Inspiring... Uplifting... Rejuvenating....and touching the core of the group with a new way to express hear them laugh, to watch them watch you in awe and wonder, and to hear their enthusiasm was delightful. Thank you Barbican Theatre and Rationale.. (and to any funding from Plymouth City Council/Arts Council. Worth every single penny!). I hope the interactions from the audience weren't too loud and were in the mood of the event. Even our most hardened 'disaffected' young men (and women) were with you on the stage. Wish we could have afforded for the whole school to participate (not all at the same though!) Thank you. We will no doubt follow you on fb (and maybe tweet... ). — Lucy Gomer
Your performance tonight was one of the most enjoyable productions I've ever watched! Fun, emotional and the characters were so interesting! You each have your own style of dance and it was really exciting and beautiful to watch. The storyline was brilliant, such good acting, really believable. thoroughly enjoyed it!! You've obviously worked very hard and it was a really professional piece of work. You deserve all the credit you get. Good luck in the future. — Becky Cavanagh
