Reviews

“...their friendly blend of ideas and kinetics combines likeable daring with a warmly human charm ”

— Donald Hutera, The Place

“'2 B' is a humorous and human piece of involving dance theatre. Their text enhances the unique dance style and the two personalities shine through endearingly.”

— Lindsey Clark, The Londonist
