"Odyssey by Clarisse Roud was a breathtaking display of feminine power. Beautifully articulate movement, weighted and smooth flowing dynamics peppered with moments of tenderness performed by a cast of accomplished dancers."
Nina Atkinson - Artistic Director of the Loop Dance Company.
"Odyssey was one of substantial emotional investment and thorough commitment by all involved. Such a strong and clear telling of the journey of grief and all its components. Everyone, from Clarisse, through to the dancers and musicians carried themselves with such conviction and commitment. The musical accompaniment was so beautifully chosen, complimenting the piece and its inhabitants elegantly and so very sensitively throughout. Such thoughtful, rich, evocative and intelligent choreography. It’s obvious that Clarisse cares deeply for her work. A beautiful talent and I, for one felt very fortunate to experience Odyssey earlier this year here in London."
Simone Sault - International Freelancer Coach, Creative and Choreographer.
