“Having predicted this show to be one to watch, it’s fair to say that this will be one of the hottest tickets in the UK let alone Edinburgh – get in there as quickly as you can! A delight from start to finish, expect your face to ache from smiling non-stop.”

Rachel Drazek’s robust, punky choreography mocks the tropes of group machismo: there’s arm wrestling, racing, and male model posturing, there’s flirting with the BSL interpreter…   The Stage

Tremendously choreographed. The Sunday Herald

Birds of Paradise Theatre Company have created an enlightening production which explores movement with a whole new concept.  The Review Hub

IF EVERYONE had the opportunity to see Purposeless Movements, attitudes towards disability would change overnight. The Scotsman

This is one brilliantly shrewd triumph of a show…honest even unflinchingly graphic, wickedly funny and memorably impressive at every level . The Herald


“Rachel weaves a sort of magic in the room through improvisation and simple aids. Through gentle encouragement and with the help of the carers, Drazek brings a palpable sense of joy to the room.”
