Seeing you do that beautiful ethereal, clear, difficult to describe movement stuff. I love it.

I thought the work was very inventive and interesting to watch... Love the projections & potential for these & screen- most interesting projections with dance I have seen for ages. I thought the projections defined the space beautifully from all angles.
