IRISH TIMES

Visions of a Nomad's “ ARC dreaming was the most popular,exotic and unusual even at the diversions festival, the audience not only forced an encore
but wanted the group to stay all night”



HAAGS WEST NIEUWS

“The rythm of song music and dance in the performance ARC dreaming is incredibly strong, eventhough you can’t really categorise this performance as it is not like anything you have ever seen or heard before, it is as if you are entering a world of mysterious magic, it was hard to sit still on my chair!”


HAAGSE COURANT


“ In a spectaculaire show, this colourful cast tells the story of the past, present and future of Australia”



THEATER AAN HET SPUI

“ Musically the didgeridoo play a leading role, not only as a solo instrument but in combination with other instruments; very unusual is also that the didgeridoo is used in classical pieces, jazz and modern grooves, ARC dreaming crosses barriers”

CAIRNS POST

“This unique group plays a splendid combination of modern jazz and popular music mixed with Indigenous beats and chants , but what I found most intriguing was their incredible use of a variety of instruments played simultaneously !”
