Kally Lloyd-Jones’s The Seven Deadly Sins was sharp, sexy and bitterly sad. ★★★★★ Independent on Sunday, 2011

Fringe Preview: Nijinsky's Last Jump

The List, 30 June 2015

Nijinsky’s Last Jump [★★★★☆] by Company Chordelia is devastating, a play/dance exploring Nijinsky’s schizophrenia and the years of cruel treatment he endured in asylums. Both dancer Darren Brownlie and actor James Bryce playing Njinsky’s younger and older selves are moving. The Skinny, 2015

 A remarkable new piece Herald, 2015

★★★★★ The Guardian
