"The lighting (by Kieron Johnson) plays a huge part in the piece. Haze hangs over the whole stage, through which narrow side-lighting is able to pick out even the smallest of details: at one point all that is being illuminated is a hand - but that hand was so expressive! The absolute precision of the lighting is a major contributor to the overall effect."
Peter Lathan - British Theatre Guide
"Kieron Johnson's lighting design is outstanding."
Mike Dixon - Dance Europe
"The dancers also have the benefit of Kieron Johnson's stunning lighting design. This skillfully evokes everything from a stage full of cramped cells to the moving seas."
