“Emi Pogoni’s score and Elekis Poblete Teirney’s lighting both achieve nuance, variety and integration with the choreography and themes of Premonition.”
-- Brigitte Knight, The Post

“With hints of the sound qualities and motifs of the first work, I am reminded that this sound scape was also developed by Pogoni. However, this sound track is more fluid and lyrical.”
-- Dr Debbie Bright, Theatreview

“The lighting and sound play an important part in clarifying the intent. Collaborations of this nature are more and more an integral part of contemporary dance creation, fully reflecting the multi-dimensional approaches to theatrical presentation of our time.”
-- Jenny Stevenson, Theatreview
