THE SLEEPING BEAUTY 2011/12
.Dance Europe, March 2011 - Lewis Landini caught the eye for the fluidity of contemporary movement, unexpected from his noble and classical bearing...
.Edinburgh Evening News, 21 April 2011 - …an absorbing encounter between Humpty Dumpty, Alice and the Jabberwock. While engaging an audience with a sensitive portrayal of the tragic-comic cracked egg is a rather tall order, Lewis Landini does it spectacularly against the present of Owen Thorne’s disturbed Jabberwock.
.TVBomb, 21 April 2011 – Adam Blyde’s superbly flamboyant Spanish Caterpillar and Lewis Landini’s Humpty Dumpty provided two sublime moments.
.Theatreinwales, 05 May 2011 – Lewis Landini as Humpty Dumpty gives us an excellent and detailed performance that epitomises the masterful artistic skill of everyone involved in this magnificent production.
