‘1000 revolutions per moment is about pop & politics; the search for the perfect gig; music and social change; remembering the soundtrack to growing up - and a whole lot more... Truly site-responsive theatre with strong performances a key factor in the show's success. Catch it if you can!’

‘1000rpm was wonderful. All in all, one of the best things I've seen in a couple of years. It used the back streets, gardens and alleyways of Kings Cross as its stage. It encompassed music, poetry and theatre seamlessly and drove the audience along in a beautifully smooth and choreographed manner from a performance in the courtyard of an old housing block, to a silent revolutionary procession.'
