We are thrilled to announce Hannah Kidd has been nominated for 'Outstanding Female Performance' by The Critics Circle for the 17th National Dance Awards for her role as Penelope in Mark Bruce's production of The Odyssey.
★★★★ “there are sequences of astonishing power and invention… rock’n’roll theatre ballet of a very high calibre"
★★★★ “Surreal epic with a Tarantino twist… the Quentin Tarantino of contemporary dance… worth making that epic journey home.”
★★★★ “a bold project, crammed with incident and detail, and highly atmospheric… an engrossing and overwhelming evening in the theatre. Compelling performances from the leading players and images of stormy seas and shipwreck will linger in the memory ...the crumbling intimacy of Wilton’s Music Hall adds a special magic.”
★★★★★ “a phenomenal display of dance… The dance is faultless and relentlessly entertaining… top-notch artistry and, truthfully, it does justice to the word ‘epic’ ”
★★★★ “Here is one new dance show London really can’t afford to miss…. we recommend you book right away.”
★★★★ “..a powerful dance theatre retelling of Homer's epic. The choreography is spot-on, precise and emotional...the sheer emotional energy of the dance make this Odyssey truly epic.”
★★★ “Blood and terror saturate Mark Bruce’s vivid Odyssey… one of the most consistently thought-provoking choreographers working in Britain today”
★★★★ “Mark Bruce’s vision of this cultural foundation stone is dark, violent and sexy.”
★★★ “Bruce’s complex and clever interpretation of this ancient epic poem is a significant achievement.”
