Press quotes

Surge

The feel is unearthly, Brown’s voice pouring over a dark electronic score by producer Ital Tek. She is part robot, part house diva. Surge’s universe is created by designer Barret Hodgson, with sheets of light slicing the stage, and complex digital projections, suggesting neural networks and electronic circuitry, patterns chasing Brown across the floor – sometimes she seems to control them, sometimes they control her.
Lyndsey Winship, The Guardian 22/03/2023

Subversion

Set to tracks from producer Wen’s album EPHEM:ERA, strong on subwoofers, drifting between club and spaced-out after party. Dale’s contemporary choreography absorbs elements from hip-hop, popping and the looseness and bounce of house dance, as if torsos are tossed in the air causing ribs and shoulders to separate then all fall and stack back together. Limbs fly like a 3D spirograph and blur in the light – that’s a bit of a Russell Maliphant moment, but Dale and his dancers aren’t copyists, they have a style that’s distinct.
Lyndsey Winship, guardian 22/03/2023

The Jungle Book

The fantastic jungle setting (designer Kate Unwin) and atmospheric lighting effects (Chris Flux) all serve the piece greatly
Phil Lowe, East Midlands Theatre 19/07/2017

Treasure Island

The set design, created by Jon Harris, is aesthetically pleasing with levels and adaptation to the scene throughout with Christopher Flux's lighting complementing the physical elements.
Jenny Ell, Broadway World 25/11/2015

My Dogs Got No Nose

The second half opens with him coming back to his dressing room, still buzzing, on a high after his performance - and then he picks up where he left off reminiscing. Slowly the mood changes – something achieved with the aid of terrific stage lighting - and becomes much darker as the full tragic story is laid bare.
Brad Barnes, Peterborough Telegraph 04/02/2015
