"This is truly a masterpiece. I've never seen such a performance. The music, the emotion, the look in their eyes, the way their bodies move and tell this story... it's brilliant"
'Lindsay Kemp lives in this absorbing hour of dance-theatre, as do Aubrey Beardsley's Illustrations for Wilde's Salome, and Wilde himself, thanks to choreographers who dare to be blatant.'
Barbara Newman -Dancing Times
'EDIFICE's Salomé is full of sexual energy and spectacular dancing. You’re unlikely to see a hotter dance sequence this year.'
Jonathan Kemp - Queer Guru
'It is raw, punchy and intimate dance theatre that was absorbing, stimulating and entertaining. The company certainly seems to be on an upward curve and I am keen to see what more they can bring to their repertoire both on stage and film.'
Graham Watts - Dance Tabs
'An interesting amalgam of styles, from some excellent dancers.'
