'From Cardiff With Love' for Sherman Theatre

'Gaza/Blaenannerch', with Eddie Ladd for De Oscuro.   Funded by the Arts Council of Wales

“Research as performance is a hard spot to hit, but Gaza/Blaenannerch is as much dark enchantment as it is topical or political project, as personally searching and honest as it is sharply observed.” Jeffrey Gordon Baker LondonDance.com

"...a wise, considered and impassioned exploration of nationhood, identity and sovereignty which held a capacity audience at Yorkshire Dance spellbound." Yorkshire Dance

Mac//Beth (adaptation), for De Oscuro. Funded by the Arts Council of Wales

“....a vital, radical international take on the well-known lead characters of Shakespeare’s Macbeth  ...this collaborative production weaves romantic dance with contemporary physical theatre, text and exciting multi-media. Creating a mood akin to silent noir cinema, Tyler and Ladd share some truly tender conjugal scenes often neglected in other representations of the couple.” The Stage

TRIPTYCH, with Gwyneth Glyn for De Oscuro. Funded by the Arts Council of Wales

"While some other performances about the experiences and terrible suffering of soldiers veer into sentimentality and, frankly, could be benefits for Help for Heroes, in their lack of thought, analysis, questioning and often plain honesty, Triptych is a warts and all smack in the face about the suffering of the men and women who come home, seemingly in one piece, but shattered mentally. It also shines a much needed light on the people they leave behind...” Mike Smith - Arts Scene in Wales

“What soldiers go through during a war has been well-documented – the pain, the trauma, the loss. Those who return home are treated as heroes for their service and restored to civilian life. Triptych, the powerful three-part performance from De Oscuro, turns this idea of a happy ending completely on its head.” Public Reviews ****

“Captivating performances .....an intense evening ... a truly stunning, yet harrowing, piece.” Buzz *****
