“remarkably rich and rewarding…compelling artistry in every strand”
“Once in a blue moon a piece of work appears that is so unexpected, original and brilliant”
“The room is rich…all I can do is see their differences and marvel that such a beautiful range exists in the world…”
“Janice Parker delights in blurring the boundaries between different forms…”
“a complex mosaic of immensely watch able, expressive dance”
The members of Janice Parker’s traveller dance are adults with learning disabilities and Alan Grieg’s X-Factor team is one of Scotland’s top professional companies. The linking up affirmed what makes dance such a vital, pleasing art form – Grieg’s choreography fashioned without condescension or compromise sees the travellers dancing onwards and upwards – they are persons of unknown talents and Parker’s bid to unlock these talents deserves encouragement and backing.
