I had the extraordinary privilege of seeing DRIFT or drive last night… This play is not about triumph. It’s about coming close, and feeling what it is like to stand too close to a fire, and then waking once again our hegemonic selves.

Kitt Johnson is chiefly known as an expressive solo artist with a wide-ranging portfolio of hugely creative and minimalistic productions over a remarkable 25-year career….She is known for expressing her distinctive choreographed visions in a highly personal and courageous artistic universe…..This year she treated local audiences to the extraordinary and mysterious performance DRIFT – an impressive and highly reclaimed one-woman show….with a memorable display of dance and choreography, using her natural talent to depict both the lighter and darker sides of life, she succeeded in creating a deeply-moving raw universe of imagery and bodily transformations that won nominations for the prestigious Danish awards Reumert and Teaterpokalen.

With her deep authenticity and unique ability to create bodily transformations, Kitt Johnson once again gives us a strongly moving and universal tale of the body in her new solo performance DRIFT.

How does one, as a spectator, react to all this female power? You are flabbergasted. And then moved and happy, because you are privileged enough to experience this generous artist share her mythical insight into the body in such a strange and disturbingly divine way, right in front of your eyes.
Anne Middelboe Christensen, Information, Denmark, April 2011
It is not just well done, no, it is wildly impressive, to experience an artist like Kitt Johnson who masters to such an extent her form of expression and knows how to tell the story of an entire female life’s libido contained in one body.
Majbrit Hjelmsbo, Weekendavisen, Denmark, April 2011
A performance that consolidates Kitt Johnson’s reputation as an extraordinarily gifted artist of the body whose company anyone should allow themselves for one hour. Be there and be guaranteed to experience a human body creating shapes that you have never seen before and that you will never forget.
Uffe Munch Hansen, teaterblog.dk, Denmark, April 2011
The dancer and choreographer Kitt Johnson, with the sculptural face, has created another fantastic solo… The performance DRIFT or drive is an opportunity to step out of the hamster wheel of the city for one hour and lose yourself in emotions and sensations.
Ghita Makowska Rasmussen, Politiken, Denmark, April 2011
Kitt Johnson is a master of transformation… there is no ‘not-something’. Everything has a meaning, everything describes something, and the clear, strong images that are created on stage are almost revelations.
Marie Ivar, Terpsichore, Denmark, April 2011
A beautiful performance, as mysterious as poetic, and not least, wonderfully free from all dance conventions.
