★★★★✰ Falling Man is a huge achievement, performed with intensity and charisma, and we really need to see it again in our theatres... Dancetabs review
FALLING MAN, a new theatrical event created by multi- award winning team comprising of Dancer | Choreographer Dane Hurst & Composer | Film Director Tom Rowland.
'Hurst remains one of the most electric performers of his generation, as he demonstrates in his piece Falling Man (to music by Tom Rowland). The title recalls the famous photograph of a man falling from the north tower of the World Trade Center during the 11 September 2001 attacks, and Hurst’s choreography, a precipitous, spiralling, space-carving whirl of movement, is unnervingly suggestive of the image.'
Luke Jennings, The Guardian
'Falling Man is a powerful and unsettling work. It has been more than a year in the making from Hurst and Rowland. It’s a finely crafted piece, well-honed and thought through. It’s a remarkable performance of rare intensity and range from Hurst. '
