Dance Interrogations 2016 is ultimately an examination of the negotiations of relationship, and the expectations, desires, and respite that are therein found. From the tender brush of a gaze, to the flick of a tiny rejection, to the balancing of caretaking, we are all dancing in our relationships. Smith and Reid are experts at it.Tamara Searle

“a beautiful piece of work… at times a very real and personal memoir, and at others, a free-wheeling, physical and mental catharsis.” Simon Eales, Australian Stage
