Timely and something of a risk, The Movement is one of the most adventurous cross-pollinations of theatrical disciplines I have witnessed of late...it speaks to Saverimuttu’s confidence in his vision and in his partners. He gives up the opportunity to show off his talent on more conventional terms for a fresh and arguably more innovative concept. - Keith Waits (Arts Louisville)
