Rationale performed work in progress extracts from In My Shoes as part of the Crucible's Platforms series during the week-long National Theatre Connections festival. The extracts were performed in the Crucible foyer to the audiences attending that evening's NT Connection performances. The dance extracts displayed a strong sense of ensemble discipline and the definite potential to be developed into an exciting integrated performance piece. The audience was very appreciative of the work on the night. This bodes well for the premiere of the fully developed work on the Crucible stage this November as part of our 40th birthday celebrations, designed to shine a spotlight on Sheffield-based artists and communities. — Andrew Loretto, Creative Producer, Sheffield Theatres
Rationale brought a slick, fresh, current flavour to our performance programme. They were a joy to work with and are one of the most interesting groups emerging out of Yorkshire. I look forward to working with them in the future. — Sarah Shead Artist Development and Project Manager

Best of luck, I think your organisation is one of the freshest and most innovative I've seen in a while - good luck with everything you're doing. — Amy Carter, Head of Arts, Museums & Cultural Promotion for Sheffield Council
Rationale managed to get 300 international guest documentary filmmakers and people here on serious business to break-dance in the Showroom bar, if they can do that, imagine what they can do for your party! — Layla Croll, General Manager, Sheffield DocFest
