Part of the Significant Other – PLUS ONE Festival
'Dance partners (Rowena Bentley and Luke Lampard) find themselves at the mercy of an unhelpful salon manager (Ben Carpenter) in Elizabeth Adlington's Bronze. Although there may be an age gap between the duo, the chemistry between the Strictly aficionados is sweet if predictable, with director Kasia Rozycki eliciting a humorous and touchingly sincere performance out of Bentley and Lampard. There's some dancing of the literal and metaphorical kind and Bronze certainly attains a far higher level of success than its title suggests. Like Gluttony, it meets the brief perfectly and stands on its own as a self-contained little vignette.'
