Feedback from Alex Summers Associate Director, The Dukes Lancaster from the R&D sharing (July 2017)
“Half of Me is an elegant and unique response to fascinating source material, quite unlike anything I’ve seen before; exploring the relationship between archetypal stories and modern phenomena through a combination of dance, text and characterisation. Performances from the outstanding youth company members shine alongside professional performers, representing the impeccable quality of Swati Dance’s youth training.
It was great to see the fusion of forms you used to communicate the story of Half of Me and it had more emotional resonance I thought than the play itself. I know Satinder will be fascinated to see your take on his story.”
