What the press said
"Cheating, Lying Stealing has the snarly, combative edge of bodies on heat, seeking to vent lust regardless of consequences."
"A dance cauldron that bubbled over with spectacle."
"Page’s choreography thrills by its furious compulsion, its wrenching urgency, and the dancers’ performances are heroic"
