“Company XIV, from America, slip into decidedly decadent mode…for a commedia-cabaret about the seductive follies that almost rob Pinocchio of his chance to be a real boy…Austin McCormick’s company are an accomplished, versatile ensemble with serious circus, dance and singing skills….Wouldn’t you, like Pinocchio, want to stay on a Pleasure Island where lithe, near-naked bodies dance with such raunchy allure? It’s an exuberant romp that teases, pleases and – commendably – doesn’t go for cheap jokes about that long, phallic proboscis.” – The Herald
Austin McCormick’s Company XIV puts their Neo-Baroque spin on the beloved story by Carlo Collodi. Inspired by Commedia del’Arte and the films of Federico Fellini, this ravishing show fuses Baroque, Ballet and Flexing with sumptuous design and sound.

“Once again director/choreographer Austin McCormick presents us with a bouquet of exquisite dancers, a luminous-voiced soprano and the heady glut of Zane Pihlstrom’s fine lace, silk and leather costumes, but, just as in Judgement, his dark vision slowly peels back the layers of intoxicating beauty to reveal a disturbing core at the heart of this tale of hollow pleasure seeking.” – British Theatre Guide
