'For an early showing this is impressive stuff. A mix of studio film and live performance by Fiske and Lau and Pan – who also sings, plays and creates gloriously noisy soundscapes with feedback, loops and a floating drum – Never the Foxes promises much. Already the theatrical staging is striking and the movement and physical interplay between Fiske and Lau is intriguing and full of interconnectivity and dynamic potential, with flashes of animalism.’
