“I can think of no other male performer for whom movement is a more naturally expressive state. There is no other-dimensionality to Hay-Gordon, no barrier of self-consciousness or artifice. All is weight and heft and flow” (The Observor)
"Hay-Gordon is also excellent: compelling, and utterly physically commanding." (A Younger Theatre)
"marvellously eloquent" (Time Out, New York)
"...finally gets out of his chair to perform one of the most naturally expressive contemporary dances I’ve ever seen, he completely shatters my expectations. Hay-Gordon’s dancing honestly took my breath away" (Everything Theatre)
"Daniel Hay-Gordon is such a beautiful dancer to watch, the audience would probably be happy to watch him perform his solo for the full hour" (Cloud Dance Festival)

'Eleanor Perry as Thatcher is a highlight of the show. She gestures madly, dancing with staccato steps and dominates the stage with her movements whenever she is on it.' (Brinkworth, on Gary Clarke's COAL)
‘Cameo Cookie is a vibrant, vigorous solo and Perry gives a powerful physical performance as the vociferous Bryant with strong mime sections and a great floor-stomping dance sequence’
