Reviews
Rob Ormsby ‘Pericles’ in ‘http://www.curtainup.com/periclesstratford.html (accessed 1/2008) `....Another misstep is introducing a series of Asian performance styles which have been extracted from their original contexts and are presented as decorative, flashy displays. While the performers do not absolutely bungle the Asian forms of dance, movement and song, they demonstrate little expertise for these genres (all of which take years to master)'.
