Reviews of Blind Passion from CDF: Parade:
"Jenni Wren is a master of contact work, and her blindfolded, almost entirely naked duo with Phil Sanger is breathtakingly vulnerable. The blindfolds bring a hesitation to their movements that makes their mutual trust and physical daring all the more fascinating - probably the most entrancing act of seduction and union to be seen in dance at the moment." - Laura Cappelle
"It's HOT, but not in any sordid or smutty way. It's an impressively fresh piece and I'm sure will be in the rep for a long time - it certainly deserves to be seen by many more." - Bruce Marriott, Ballet Magazine
