'A brilliant evening and two exceptional artists' 

By Paul Liburd MBE

Last Thursday was the premiere of ‘In Light of Those You Love’ a dance theatre work by newly formed company Retrospect Dance Theatre featuring two recent graduates of Rambert School - Hannah McGlashon & Christopher Thomas.

A captivating work full of unease and tension seamlessly collaborating a collage of music, film, original text, image and dance. Their honest and believable characterisations reached out and pulled the audience into their dysfunctional relationship and world snowballing and gradually breaking down. Hannah & Chris both very strong performers complimenting each other with their visceral impulse and physicality.

The whole experience was so engrossing and stomach wrenching feeling like a box-set that you were eager to binge on the next episode. A brilliant evening and two exceptional artists.
