Reviews 

"Prior was an instantly lovable Scarecrow, dancing with equal measures of fluidity and strength. He created the strongest connection with the audience, and worked to draw us in more successfully than the other characters." 

(The Wizard of Oz) 'What's Good', Brigitte Knight, 2016

"Loughlan Prior's loose-limbed Scarecrow is beautifully nuanced and sustained" (The Wizard of Oz) Theatre Review, Deirdre Tarrant, 2016

"Loughlan Prior, as Lysander, romps his way gleefully through the ballet,

maximising all his many comic moments"

(A midsummer Nights Dream) DANZ, Jan Bolwell, 2015

 

"In both Satelittes and Megalapolis, dancer Loughlan Prior gives an exceptional performance.“  Theatre Review, Jenny Stevenson, 2014

 

"Loughlan Prior plays the languid hero impeccably.’’ (Charlie Pas de Deux) 

Theatre Review, Jenny Stevenson, 2010

 

"Loughlan Prior dances with a fluid urgency, and great connection.” (Charlie Pas de Deux) Theatre Review, Holly Shanahan, 2010

 

“The talented Loughlan Prior led the audience through every nuanced sensation in what felt like an antidote to the chaos and crowdedness of contemporary life.’’ (Through to You) New Zealand Herald, 2009
