"Mr. Brook’s influence can clearly be seen, but Mr. Rutherford is moving even more deeply into the abstract to get at the essence of meaning. Even when that meaning is sometimes elusive, this is excitingly original experimental work he is engaged in, and it is fascinating to watch as it unfolds."
"This production exudes a sense of sheer kinetic power while conveying in clipped words brief snaps of life stories. We fall into the void with them and feel the tension as they reach out, back away, and entwine. Like us, they reach until they find a helping hand, no matter how long and difficult the struggle. Their sheer power is amazing."
"Watching the skillful physical performers in All That Dies And Rises is like getting an education in movement. There are just so many ways to move and Cloud of Fools speaks a different language that is both refreshing and beautiful."
