ABOUT THE WORK

“In re-creating the atmosphere, aesthetics, and feeling of a club, Marshall has been hugely successful; her talent for the theatrical is undeniable. Likewise in creating a piece of dance-based immersive performance art that manages to break down the usual barriers in participatory art,
Marshall has succeeded”

– Time Off

“Whether fluid in femininity or in more masculine moments, the dancers are entrancing in their strength and controlled movement.”

“The accompaniment of a dynamic and engaging array of sounds and social issue commentary (including cake recipes and the words of academia alike), a thrilling musical soundtrack, exciting choreography around the scaffolding and its parts, and comments about empowerment, make ‘Flaunt’ a show not to be missed.”

– Blue Curtains

“Marshall has extensively reworked this piece, making it much richer, with its themes of gender construction, and cooperation and competition between women fully integrated with its theatricality… It was good to see this show again in its striking 2016 reincarnation.”

– XS Entertainment

“…the dancers (Essie Horn, Courtney Scheu and Amelia Stokes) did a wonderful job overall in demanding roles; they were expressive, strong and athletic…”

“…an entertaining and welcomingly female-focused work that provides a good springboard for discussion on women’s changing place in society.”
