Keith: I personally found the piece problematical in many ways, mainly creatively. I think that actually as a production I think in the venue, and in the style of it fitting in the venue, it worked very very well. However, beyond that level which is quite thin, you know actually the content and the tone within the content I find quite difficult in certain areas. Because if you don' t go into the work of Asia, actually a lot of what was done was quite thin and actually a lot of Indian art and art from India has very specific purpose and meaning which I believe that if you know a little bit more about it, this production treated very lightly.
