Here’s what the reviewers have been saying:
“Meticulous, elegant and sophisticated, Am I takes ideas from physics, astronomy, anthropology and other sciences to chart human development, starting before the Big Bang…Am I covers the ground with immense grace and delicacy” The Australian
“…impeccably performed by the dancers…Their precision in conjuring patterns with metallic sticks is remarkable.” Sydney Morning Herald
“Am I is that rare beast, a genuine collaboration between composer and dance-maker…a revelation” Limelight Magazine
“Am I submerges you in its universe completely but leaves plenty to ponder….” ★★★★ 4 Stars, The Guardian Australia
“A new polyglot tribe, shot through with contemporary sensibility and wry humour…In an era increasingly defined by irony, it’s almost impossible to resist a work that stands up and tells you that they think the world is beautiful and special. ” ★★★★ 4 Stars, Time Out, Sydney
“It is Parker using the performance space to ask the biggest questions, and what results is something transcendental and divine. This is a company determined to communicate, and the show speaks to audiences of all kinds.” Sydney Arts Guide
“In this work there is a sort of oscillation between intellectualism, anti-intellectualism, between romanticism and enlightenment. ” Kevin Jackson’s Theatre Diary
