'conceived by the designer and film-maker Netia Jones, it was a
conjunction of film and performance artfully placed in a landscape...
The strange haunted atmosphere of that far-off age came together
in the most magical way'


'What had possessed what? Was this an arts events totally infused
with the spriti of a place, or a place transfigured by the power of art?...
Such all-encompassing artworks make what normally goes on
in concert halls, theatres and galleries look tame and prehistoric'
