REVIEWS.

“Pulses are racing and bodies heaving in organic, earthy waves– it's an interesting amalgam of styles, from some excellent dancers.”

THE EVENING STANDARD

"EDIFICE Dance Theatre is still not yet five years’ old and Salomé is the company’s fourth production. It is raw, punchy and intimate dance theatre that was absorbing, stimulating and entertaining. The company certainly seems to be on an upward curve and I am keen to see what more Waghorn and De Amicis can bring to their repertoire both on stage and film."

DANCING TABS, GRAHAM WATTS

“Blending choreographic conventions to shocking effect, the company’s co-directors Carmine De Amicis and Harriet Waghorn, have filtered the sharp extravagance of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ ballroom styles through the fluidity of contemporary dance.”

DANCING TIMES, BARBARA NEWMAN

“I was mesmerised by the work. I was pleased to see new company.”

BRITISH COUNCIL,CAROLE MCFADDEN

“Inventive and collaborative with incredible talent"
