“Arcadia shows the burgeoning talent of yet another emerging female choreographer, Ruth Brill… She is certainly on the rise.”
Graham Watts, Critics’ Circle
“Brill is establishing a career as a choreographer. Peter and the Wolf shows a sharp eye for movement and storytelling.”
Zoë Anderson, The Independent
“Brill's Peter and the Wolf is a gem of a dance – it's funny and packed full of character and yet still ensures a great deal of technical skill from its cast.”
