“… [these] show and dance-oriented productions in general are about feeling and invoking an emotional response. The Sun Shining On Her Hands does this, and then some.”

The Sun Shining On Her Hands offers a very timely feminist interpretation of the character of Marie from Woyzeck, while also being a very experimental and engaging production in its own right.”

“Living up to its expectations of ‘physical theatre’, the production shines a bright beam for [the genre].”
