'River' was supported by Aberdeen City CouncilCreative Scotland and sonADA.

Very dramatic, moving and brave project - so many thanks for letting us spectate! (Fran Scot, retired teacher)

Without makers like you the world is dead, it was alive last night, as Pina would say ‘Dance, dance, dance, or we are lost’ (Richard White, Dancer)

A most memorable performance! It was poetic, beautiful and original. I loved the emotional intensity, the intelligence with which rhythms are created and the storytelling with a dimension of tragedy. The artists showed extraordinary courage, strength and commitment. The River Dee added romance and flows of movement to the performance; while the dance brought fresh life and beauty to the river. Truly wonderful! (Lin Xiong)
