"I can dance something yesterday and I can only dance it today in the knowledge of the experience I’ve had between yesterday and today. I am a body. I don’t have one. The word ‘body’ just isn’t enough. It doesn’t encompass the all of us." Siobhan Davies
“Transparent, you discover, becomes a web of images, words, sounds and ideas, shimmering with synaptic connections that form and fade like memory itself.”  Sanjoy Roy, dance writer, The Guardian
