“An audacious single-take capture of a modern dance performance, a beautifully performed thing unto itself that sensually expressed themes of community and divisiveness, exposure and hiddenness, relational violence and fraught intimacy, alienation and loneliness.”Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly Review of American Crime
“Nobles’ work had so many intricacies and illusions that were very pleasing to watch, that I could not help but muse over how it all came together.”Tara Sheena, Dance Informa Review
