"Prior’s tandem skill as a filmmaker influences an interdisciplinary approach incorporating digital animation and puppetry using light boxes to generate striking visual effects. The balanced integration of all its facets generated a wondrous ever-evolving sensory carnival that I found the evening’s most holistically satisfying."


- Olivia Stewart, Limelight 

"Prior's choreography is energetic, using the vocabulary of classical ballet, in a fast-moving, contemporary manner that particularly favours the groups impressive men, although its various
sections offer each dancer an opportunity to show off."


- Teresa Guerrero, Culture Whisper
