THE VILLAGE VOICE, NEW YORK
“'Tense Dave' may be American Dance Festival master work”
HERALD-SUN, NORTH CAROLINA
”…one of the most riveting works ever presented at the American Dance Festival.”
THE NEWS AND OBSERVER
“Tense Dave is a provocative lead-in to this year's Melbourne International Arts Festival, raising all those definitional questions of where the line lies between theatre and dance. Chunky Move refuses to recognise any lines, borrowing freely from different media to create its performances.”
“Tense Dave is a compelling work and one of Chunky Move’s most satisfyingly complicated productions.”
“With five extraordinary performers…, the creators have made a masterful hour of sound, movement and emotion. Obarzanek, Guerin and Kantor take us on a ride as expert in its execution as it is exhausting in its content…”
DANCE REVIEW TIMES
“.…an exquisite, fluid exploration of the human psyche….Their performances are at times outrageously brilliant and ingeniously subtle.”
“Harrowing and magnificent, his Dave will live long in memory."
“Tense Dave mines the trio's considerable gifts in one of the most arresting works of physical theatre seen on the Portland stage in recent seasons.”
