Reviews of The Devils Spine Band
‘….submerged audiences in its beautifully strange imaginative world…’
‘The Devil ’s Spine Band offered innovative and unconventional performance and musical expressions contained within an astounding composition of forms and visual objects, garments and video art.’
‘…the playfully grotesque butoh dancers Gyohei Zaitsu and Maki Watanabe created mesmeric images of stunning, bizarre elegance….’
‘Weird or what?’ The Irish Times
