'...this piece hovers excitingly between theatre and dance and exists in a present infused by a premonition of what is about to become history. In love and in war. It is a great contribution by the consummate choreographer, Jacky Lansley.'

Yana Stajno on Coats and Plays

'Bird unfolds on a stylish stage... more elegant still is Lansley's weaving of history into the choreography...'

Guardian on Bird

'The show is sufficiently strange and wondrous to suggest – in a modest way – the true originality of its distant model (Fokine's Firebird).
Better still it's amusing and beautifully performed... ...Bird was bursting with detail, erudition and droll humour.'

Independent on Sunday on Bird
