“Lydia’s musical choices are instinctive and her rehearsal is a laboratory rather than a lecture: she doesn’t come in with everything mapped out in advance but rather she tries and discards options to achieve the look she has in mind. The dancers are all fine technicians and willing to try anything.” Philip Gardner, Oberon’s Grove, 2009
