Standing Stones, from the Ascendance Rep Company, is utterly beautiful’ so says Kevin Berry
(The Stage http://www.thestage.co.uk/reviews/revie ... ing-stones) and I have to agree with him.

Of our party of 6 attending the performance at York Minster, 4 had never been to a dance event before. It was pleasing to note that they all would go again. One guest was really disappointed when it was over!

I had no idea what to expect. The grandiose and cavernous venue was imposing, the music exquisite, and the four dancers, undaunted by their surroundings drew the attention and delighted and impressed their audience. Pleasure was written on many faces straining to see every poised and graceful movement from the confines of the church pews.

The performance succeeded on many fronts, cleverly done, attention to detail, confident and supportive dancers, unusual setting and as with our party, a pleasing introduction to the arts to a new audience. I wonder if there are any plans to take this piece to other (European?) cathedrals, maybe through the British Council?
