The Hiccups are the golden girls of Edinburgh

The Edinburgh critics loved ‘May-We-Go-Round?’ by The Hiccup Project in the Fringe this month:

May-We-Go-Round is one for everywoman. Full of tears and laughter.” Total Theatre

It is rare to see dancers who are also such brilliant actors – woebegone, giggling or full-on.”  The Skinny

So euphoric and so infectious…. It’s like Smack the Pony meets Jasmin Vardimon.”  Fest Mag

“The lost art of bedroom choreography is flung out of the wardrobe…. they perform with their whole bodies and we drink them in entirely. There’s a real guts and guns approach to the quality of movement — a throw-your-body-on-the-line-and-leave-nothing-behind”  Writing About Dance
