"Sean Graham's piece Freedom Of A Formless Kind... offers more insights into the riots in a few minutes than most politicians/artists have managed in years. Beautifully crafted and intelligently performed, it combines a range of contemporary dance styles including jazz. It demonstrates the ability of dance to speak when words have failed."
Dr Nathalie Teitler on Freedom of a Formless Kind
"The work that Sean Graham presented at "Back at the Lab''… made a connection with his audience. It was a slap in the face but, at the same time, they could laugh about it... a piece with a strong, serious and sometimes painful themes but Graham succeeded in making it open and interesting… The images Graham created where super strong… Graham managed to use different disciplines to tell the story without making it artificial… I think Graham can think more of himself as an all-round theatre maker who uses different disciplines... The work Graham presented at Sadler’s Wells made me want to see more... and I think the piece has enough potential and content to develop into a one-hour show."
By Sophie de Vries - Dancer Producer and manager
"Sean's solo was a brave and beautiful work entering into an intelligent and thought provoking discourse through voice and movement. Engaging lighting, enthralling dancing and an important message. You need to see this work."
Ella Mesma - Dancer/Choreographer
"Sean's choreographic input was invaluable in adding a dynamic and credible movement element to the show…. Sean's well researched and inspiring methodology motivated the actors to develop and extend their physical work. Sean's input was integral to the show. He was a pleasure to work with and I hope we get the chance to work together again."
Angela Michaels Director of 'Locked in' by Fin Kennedy
"I saw the CSDC performance at the Clore Ballroom and was blown away! The fusion of bodies, words and sounds, genre crossing, expanding way way beyond stereotypes of 'urban' to express the diversity and expansiveness of the lives inside Londoners. I would certainly pay good money to see those performances on the main stages of the Southbank- and collaborations between those artists and others who conventionally perform on the stages there. Amazing also to see different generations of artists... collaborating so easily with newer artists. Fresh! So thank you! From the perspective of someone in the audience it was a total pleasure."
Jessica Horn - Audience/Creative Artist
"There is defo a professional tone (rather than youth/community outreach project) , and a celebration of "home grown" talent. Also, we're still a group of individuals from many fields (we haven't gathered for a particular age/gender/genre/ethnic group) we're all connecting through this and it's grounding our community as well as enhancing the RFH (Southbank Centre) profile."
