"Wow! How fortuitous, to catch the penultimate performance of Short Sweet + Dance in its third and final week. The overall standard was truly surpassing, even by the consistently high measure customarily applicable to this worthy event on Sydney's autumnal arts calendar...

Ars Diaboli, by Svebor Secak, uses avant-garde classical music (by Niksa Njiric & Ivo Josipovic), a dynamic live string quartet, and superb dancers Benjamin Duran and Ksenija Krutova, to meditate, in surprisingly light, supremely confident and gently amusing fashion, on 'the porous line that divides and connects contemporary ballet and modern dance'. The engagement with the music, presence, balletic excellence and creativity is breathtakingly brilliant: there is practically no way to convey the effect..."
