Ranging from the tragic to the absurd, this highly acclaimed production was presented as an emotionally charged performance through 70’s beat poetry, marching bands on speed and phantom punch-ups.

“It is indeed a rare event for art to move a hardened critic to tears, even one as lachrymose as myself. However, this is precisely what happened when I saw Jennifer Irons’ (ironINC Dance Company) production, …But Seriously? at The Place. A one-night event, it demonstrated how closing the gap between intention and invention can truly make for powerful and emotive art. Humour, tragedy and love were portrayed with truly innovative choreography and brilliant teamwork (DVD available from the Place). A singular contemporary dance piece, …But Seriously? should have a long season at a prominent venue. Seriously.”
-Richard Dyer, Contemporary Magazine
“Strikes a fine balance between de-constructed choreography and unabashed exuberance.” ? – Dr Kathy Battista, Sothebys Institute
