“Mitch Harvey and Ella-Rose Trew impress with their powerful responses throughout” – Nerida Dickinson, ArtsHub Australia
“Solo or foregrounded displays from Katherine Gurr and Mitch Harvey are memorable highlights, demonstrating personal passion and skill as well as providing respite from the high drama of the emotive massed group scenes.” – Nerida Dickinson, Artshub
“Diversity was evident in the variety of hairstyles and body shapes, with Mitch Harvey in particular towering over the other dancers.” – Sarah Green, Australian Stage
“I can never stop watching WA’s Mitch Harvey – this is in part because he’s so damn good and in part because he towers over everyone like a member of some super-handsome alien species. (As a tall person myself, I just don’t understand how it’s possible that someone of Harvey’s height can possess such mastery over his limbs.) ” – Vanya Bromilow, Seesaw Magazine
