reviews

"Beautifully and disturbingly moving... the piece is characterized by a never ceasing flow of movement... The precision of the movements creates a contrast to the disharmonies it portrays... In this way Boxman becomes a simultaneously beautiful and disturbing description of the restricting conditions on the individual in modern society."

Birgitta Johansson, Svenska Dagbladet

"...interesting, thought-provoking, and entertaining..."

"Fernando Melo knows what he wants and has a clear message."

Hans Peterson, HallandsPosten
