Exciting hour of dance. Troupe is strong, dancing is insistent which compelled watching. Well done!

Captivating, original and bold choreography performed by a company who clearly have a strong synergy and shared performance values. I enjoyed this show very much; the choreography was fresh, innovative and bold, executed with a high level of precision, timing and synchronicity. Highly recommended.

Captivating throughout exploring relevant themes through dance. The energy in the room was quite tribal at times with extended silences punctuating the artists work. One not to be missed this festival season.

All the beautiful dances seemed to signify deeper meanings. Not only visually captivating but thought provoking too. A must see!!

Having seen the show last year, I had high expectations and boy, this year did not disappoint!

The music choices are well thought through and one specific monologed piece really strikes a cord with me as a female!

The chorography is beautiful and the dancers really give it everything!

5*, excellent show! I'll definitely be going again before the run ends!

Opening night, what to expect..
There was a soft buzz of excitement as people took their seats and waited for the performance to start.

The new pieces this year add more energy, fun, thought-provoking moments and a level of artistic accomplishment from both the dancers and the choreographer that will simply not disappoint any fan of contemporary dance & movement.

I was sat in the front row next to a random gentleman, who had mentioned as the lights dimmed he was excited to see how opening night was and whether there'd be any butterflies or any kinks needing to be ironed out. As the lights came back up he turned to me and simply said "WOW"

I don't think I could put it any better than that!
5* must-see performance!

Absolutely inspiring. Every single one of these dancers give 100% into every part of the show. The choreography was fresh and exciting, I felt I was watching stories unfold. I will definitely be coming back to watch it all again and catch anything I may have missed!

Tonights opening performance - having attended last years performance my expectations were high and Unearthed Company did not disappoint. Fresh material set to provocative music, the dances were clean and tight with all the performers giving their all. Very relevant themes addressed with mesmerising movement. A real mix of styles and themes with my particular favourite being an extended piece in silence really demonstrating the performers professionalism and skill. Absolutely loved the show and would recommend it highly to lovers of artist dance. 5* from me.
