Description "Outstandingly good…an evening of beautiful and stimulating entertainment…improved pace, flow and polish - with no loss of freshness. …although their art form is stylised and strictly structured, Refractions never looks like an exercise. The ideas spill over in all kinds of ways, from a barely perceptible shiver that represents a zephyr’s breath, to a giant-size cat’s cradle.” Jill Sykes 2/6/84
