I believe that I saw Compagnie III at the South Bank as part of the London International Mime Festival about eight years ago and liked it very much. By tilting various sections of the stage the distinction between standing up and lying down became fascinatingly blurred in their dance acrobatic performance. It may have incarnated several times since. Is this the same company? I certainly look forward to seeing them again.

It is simply hugely satisfying to see Clemmie Sveaas nominated for her role as Anna Goeldi in Cathy Marston's Witch Hunt last year - and just one reminder of 'why' from Dave Morgan's Gallery:

She was, of course, the central character but, in truth, any award should go to the quintet of magnificent women who quickened that sad story of the last witch executed in Europe - Clemmie, Paula Alonso as young Anna-Miggeli, Martina Langmann's cold but tragic mother, Frau Tchudi, actress Mona Kloos as the 'older' Anna-Miggeli ... and, of course, Cathy herself, who created it all.  I've said it before here, but it remains for me a superb piece of dance theatre.
