Divine Madness selected as one of the best shows of 2019 by Chris O'Rourke, The Arts Review "John Scott’s delightful Divine Madness did much to suggest there’s much more to come from this intriguing choreographer."
Thank you for an Amazing 2019!

"Visually striking and infused with an exuberant energy, Divine Madness is something of a wild, bittersweet joy" - Chris O'Rourke, The Arts Review
"Inventions is driven by the sense of falling, of moment-to-moment normality swept away in a self-consuming emotional vortex... The dancing from the entire cast is always laser-focused and impressively committed" - Michael Seaver, The Irish Times
"Highly original and exploratory... every minute of the show is a reminder of the versatility, adaptability, resilience, discipline and strength of singers and dancers" - No More Workhorse
"A full-throated and full-bodied exploration of the physicality of the operatic soprano" - Michael Seaver, The Irish Times
“Ranging from simplicity of Mary Nunan to poetic angst of Mufutau Yusuf… to infectious rhythms of Liam O Scanlain… to wild fantasy-inducing people-forest of John Scott” - Wendy Perron, Dance Magazine
