‘If you squashed Gary Clarke into a time capsule, buried it, and retrieved it in years to come, a heady reminder of the politically turbulent and poptastic 80’s and 90’s would leap out like a crazed jack-in-the-box.’
‘If we tell you that Gary Clarke has been mentored by two of the more mischief making names in contemporary dance, it gives you an idea of Clarke’s maverick tendencies’
