  • I saw the show last night (19th Oct) at The Lowry, Salford. It was a complete breath of fresh air, I was riveted from start to finish. I could have sworn it was only 30mins long! I really wish I had booked early enough to bring a group of my students because they would have adored it. So vibrant, full of life, humorous and invigorating. I literally do not have enough positive things to say about ‘Happy As Larry’!

  • WOW. What a show! Saw it 2nd night in Warwick & it hasn’t left me yet. I don’t think it will. Physical Perfection. Your tour is too short I want everyone I know, to feel the vibrancy and the awesome visual art that your movements produced. Stunningly inventive, funny and tender. I drove home feeling very happy. Safe in the knowledge that I had been privelidged to see something very powerful and very very special. Thank you.

  • My friend Megan and her family and I came to watch your show and we all massively enjoyed it! You were all spectacular and the choreography was brilliant! We also went to the workshop the next day and you were lovely, friendly people and very inspiring to work with so a massive thank you for that! We hope you enjoy the rest of your tour in England and well done :)

  • I saw the show in Truro. A small audience, I feel better publicity would have produced more although the price for just over one hour may have put people off as we are used to 3 short works and two intervals making more of an evening out.
    Very inventive show with ideas I had not seen before, using drawing, roller skates and a ball. Action packed and very well performed. Some of the music was too loud for me near the end. I was a bit disappointed because having read the blurb I expected more of the 9 types and I could not work out who was who and see I got some wrong on reading the education download. As I thought this is the product of workshops sessions and seemed a bit like these strung together, just lacked something in the way of reflection, but it flowed well with different styles used in an integrated way. Lovely moving part with the roller skater and the woman. An enthusiastic audience roar but I couldn’t hear anyone discussing it afterwards, felt a bit bombarded, impressed by energy and technique and amused at times. Why so much group stuff in unison? Worth seeing.

  • Happy as Larry was truly amazing. The choreography was so good! The fast, flawless dancing was intense and over-whelming. Also, the odd bit of humor made it fantastic! Marlborough School.

  • I was just fortunate to sneak a peek at the cast of the show rehearsing in Northampton. Audiences are in for a treat. What a wonderful group of people, not only do they move with such beauty and grace but they are a charming and comical bunch. Cannot wait to see the show tonight!

  • happy as Larry was the best dance performance that I have seen in 15 years. It was refreshing in it’s saturation of real beauty rather than projected beauty. The movement was fluid, enagaging and had breathed originality into older forms. the punctuation of the structure with the background and the styles of performance were outstanding as was the relationship of the dancers to each other and the audience. at last a company that danced with alive eyes. Thank you so much. I went home, put on music and danced myself silly.
