'What Watson conveys, powerfully but economically, is how the culture that they brought with them brightened the drabness and meanness of the postwar years. Gospel and calypso, and later ska and reggae, and the dances that accompanied them, changed the look and sound of Britain forever'

The Guardian (Luke Jennings) - 11 February 2018

'A glorious celebration of a moment in history told in movement, yes, but also in vibrant colour and evocative sound that has you leaving the theatre with a smile on your face'

The Culture Vulture (Richard Horsman ) - 11 February 2018


'Truly magnificent...uplifting, thought-provoking, witty and very moving. Dance theatre doesn’t come much better than this'

Yorkshire Post (Yvette Huddleston) - 08 February 2018
