“The movements themselves were created by graduate Connor Masseurs, who performed the dance, playing the part of a “glitching” robotic man short-circuiting on stage with skilful, shuddering movements. Masseurs completely absorbed us with his solo: it wasn’t just his limbs that Masseurs controlled, he extended the idea to facial movements, inventively finding new ways to glitch.” – Jack Yan, Lucire
“The work was quite disturbing in a good way! The choreography, which includes aspects of contemporary dance, street dance and robotics, focuses on dislocation and isolation. At times it was almost repellent, and yet we were fascinated by its oddity and by the extremely skilful rendering of it by Masseurs.” – Ann Hunt
