Ch. Robert Connor & Loretta Yurick/Suzy Blok & Chris Steel (Netherlands) (1998)

".a double act throughout reflecting two sets of dynamics-the sacred and the profane, old and new.the mystical and the modern.."

".We are taken on a journey where atmosphere and movement constantly dissemble: darkness is suddenly suffused with light, sombre mood shot through with gaiety, languorous motion swept into fast and swirling dance.intensely engaging."

".featuring Pol Brennan's majestic score and the inspired delicacy of Paul Keogan's lighting.
