Dante or Die: Press

PRESS

"DANTE OR DIE ARE EXPERTS IN SITE-SPECIFIC THEATRE" - The Arts Desk

HANDLE WITH CARE

"an intricately choreographed bit of theatre that finds in the strip-lit corridors and corrugated units of self-storage a powerful metaphor for our emotional hinterland." -The Guardian 

"This fragmented approach produces some individually striking moments. One room in particular mesmerisingly conveys Zoe’s passage from partying youth to responsibility-filled motherhood, swiftly traversing a number of years...there’s a beautiful transition from one stage in life to the next" - Exeunt

"they skilfully blend narrative with a nuanced and detailed sense of the emotional and visceral transitions we make as we grow older" - Total Theatre

"a witty, intimate and tenderly crafted piece of theatre" - London Theatre 1 

"Cleverly choreographed in an extremely unusual space" - Everything Theatre

"If you only see one show this year I strongly recommend you make sure that it is this one." - The Reviews Hub

“a meticulously crafted site-specific play... a clever, funny, touching and satisfying show” - Evening Standard

“the pleasure lies in the intricate planning of Chloe Moss’s writing and Daphna Attias’s production, and in the buzz of being so close to the characters at extraordinarily intimate moments”

★★★★★
“alternately tender, uplifting, and utterly crushing”
Exeunt
 

“stand out performances come courtesy of Christopher Dunham as the Grandfather and Terry O’Donovan as the Best Man. Both proved cabable of shifting the emotional tone of the piece in unexpected and touching ways”
